Class Experience

Are you a high school student with college on your mind? Over the course of this five-day workshop, high school students will move through a generative writing process that guides them through brainstorming, drafting, and revising college application essays. By the end of the week, each student will have studied the craft of the personal essay and other elements of nonfiction. Students will leave camp with complete essay drafts and a revision roadmap for how to polish and customize these drafts for their college applications.

- These workshops will require campers to have access to Zoom and GoogleDrive.
- This workshop is capped at 12 students maximum.
- Each student will be assigned a Google Drive folder where they can upload their work for additional instructor feedback and communication.
