Are you applying for college, graduate school, summer programs, internships, scholarships? If so, you will likely we asked to write an essay. Help is a click away.
High school students can learn more here.
If you are currently in college or if you have graduated, go here.
But if you are looking for ways to help yourself–how to get ideas, narrative strategies to try, steps for generating material etc.–I encourage you to check out my blog. You will find most of what you are looking for under Admissions Essays in “How to Write.”
One caveat: I scan the web for great examples of admissions essays. I provide the full text to serve solely as models, which I analyze and mine for strategies and ideas. So, I want to say, not only is it plain wrong to plagiarize but it’s unhealthy (causes too much stress, may result in bad life outcomes, and deprives the brain of excellent opportunities to develop!)
Please contact me if you have questions or want to learn more.
