Take the mystery and stress out of writing college application essays. In this five-afternoon writing workshop (to be held outdoors, with an online option), you'll learn to write outstanding essays. You’ll learn the elements of a strong college application essay, generate topic ideas, and draft and revise answers to the four UC Personal Insight Questions, the Common Application Personal Statement, and the "Why this school?" essay. Limited to 6 students, you’ll receive daily individualized attention and constructive essay feedback. By the end of the five days, you'll have strong drafts of 6 application essays.

Workshop participants are guaranteed space in Deborah’s one-on-one essay coaching practice—although many workshop participants leave the workshop with the confidence and skills to finish their essays without the need for additional guidance.
