College Essay Camp
This course is designed to provide time, support, and instruction to rising seniors in drafting their college essays. We will focus primarily on the Common Application essay, but students may also work on their UC essays, supplementals, and scholarship applications.
Students will learn the principles of an effective college essay, study successful models, generate original ideas, draft essays, and receive feedback.
We will cap the class at sixteen, so each student will receive daily responses from the instructor and have the opportunity for meaningful collaboration with each other.
The instructor is a high school English teacher, who earned her MA in Education from Stanford and MFA in Creative Writing from the Rainier Writing Workshop. She has published a full-length memoir and numerous personal essays.
