College application essays can be daunting, but getting a guided head-start helps relieve stress and amplifies ownership of the process. In this two-hour workshop, writing coach Laurie Filipelli will help students honor their own personal stories, discover their authentic beliefs, and hone the writing and self-presentation skills needed for success in college and beyond. Students will receive step-by-step advice and individualized feedback as they engage in practical writing exercises.

In order to participate, high-school seniors are required to complete and submit a preliminary self-reflection and essay first-draft no later than Tuesday, September 5. To request documents and begin the registration process, email programs director Cecily Sailer at csailer@austinlibrary.org.
