The Personal Essay for High School Students
Whether for public blogs or personal journals, the basics of narrative writing apply. In this workshop, students will use weekly prompts to write about themselves while finding their own writer's voice, developing compelling stories, and using descriptive language. Within the 90 minute workshop, students will share their work with each other, learning how to give and receive constructive feedback. By workshop's end, each writer will be ready to tackle the personal essays for college applications.
