Event description
The challenges that students **** in composing authentic and compelling college-application essays are many, and they begin early. Brimming with stories from his long study of students’ writing efforts — not only on the page but also in the often uneasy approach to it — Allan Reeder, founder of Hillside Writing, opens fresh and profitable ways of seeing and thinking about "the essay." Case studies provide entry into the sentences and the evolving sensibilities of past college applicants who have progressed beyond the worry about having to say something significant and into the confidence of having something specific and personally meaningful to say. Allan teaches about common pitfalls students encounter and shares the Hillside approach to launching this project.
Attendees get working on the page and in conversation toward discovery of topics about which they can write with ownership, effectiveness, and even enjoyment! Many students will oftentimes write about their Youth in Philanthropy experience in their college essay, so this workshop will help attendees think of creative and fresh ways to capture this experience in a unique way.
Pizza, light snacks, and beverages will be provided. Please note that this curriculum was designed with high school juniors in mind.
This event is part of the 2019 Beyond YIP Alumni Series. This is part-one of a four-part series designed to engage YIP alumni in personal, professional, and educational opportunities that will benefit them now and in the future! Please note that you must be a Youth in Philanthropy alumni to register for these events.
All proceeds from the series will benefit the Foundation for MetroWest's Youth in Philanthropy programs. To learn more visit .
