Mind-Numbing to Mind-Blowing:
How to Write an Essay that Someone Might Actually Want to Read
Believe it or not, there are people who write essays without being commanded to. And people actually exist who READ them and—get this—they do it because they want to!
This workshop will debunk the myth that essays are unavoidably painful experiences for both writer and reader. Students will learn some secrets to writing well, with form and structure, but without following a bland, prefabricated template. You’ll learn how to write about interesting things in a way that prods the intellect—without stifling the imagination.
Every college-bound student needs to know how to write an essay. This workshop will provide instruction and hands-on practice—plus a healthy dose of inspiration. It will also cover some strategies for evaluating, revising, and proofreading essays, so parents of teens are welcome and sure to benefit as well.
