College Application Essay Workshops

Register for a workshop

Rising high school seniors are invited to join NCF Writing Program faculty for a free virtual workshop on writing the college application essay. 

College application essay writing can be an overwhelming experience for many students.  Not only can the stakes be high, but it is not always easy nor comfortable for students to write about themselves.  Many students don’t know where to begin or how to come up with a topic or topics to write about.  Others know what story they want to tell but don’t know how to organize their narrative.  This workshop will help students:

  • understand and analyze Common Application essay questions
  • brainstorm essay topic(s)
  • select an essay topic and generate a narrative with details and description
  • explore organizational choices
  • give and receive developmental feedback

By the end of the workshop, students will have a first draft of their essay.
