For high school students applying to college, no task looms larger or causes more stress than completing applications. In this session, Pat Berry, a writer and the founder of College Application Camp & Coaching, will present her guidelines on writing memorable college application essays. Though not a workshop per sé, Pat’s talk will provide tips for finding creative inspiration, working through writer’s block, and getting started. Pat brings to essay coaching a track record of helping reluctant writers identify engaging topics and produce personal narratives that reflect each student’s unique voice, passions, and personal outlook on the world. She’ll address the long-term value of writing in first-person and help students discern the activities, experiences, insights, and feelings that will make stories resonate with admissions readers. This session is designed to be meaningful to both future college applicants and parents, and it includes a question and answer period.
