One Hour of Exploring College Essay Topics

College Essay Topics

In this one-hour drafting session for high school seniors, in-person or via Skype, I will help get the proverbial essay ball rolling. We will work together to review college essay topics and hopefully find one that satisfies a Common Application Essay prompt, engages the reader and feels honest in tone and point-of-view.

My background in PR, marketing and branding as well as years spent as a fiction and creative non-fiction writing teacher come into play when I look at a student’s dossier. The college essay shouldn’t be a reiteration of what’s already obvious from test scores, grades, teacher recommendations, outside interests, summer experiences and academic/athletic/artistic achievements. Rather, a good essay adds dimension, character and personality to a student’s application.

Sessions are conducted in-person or via Skype during the months of June, July and August. The fee for the Brainstorm is $350.

Please email me at or call me at 917-863-2424 to discuss your student’s summer schedule and individual needs.
