Course Description: Powerful and well-written essays can greatly increase a student’s chance of being accepted to the college of his or her choice. This 5-day workshop will give students the skills that they need to write the two main kinds of essays required by colleges and universities: personal statements and prompt-based essays. Grammar, formatting, style, and topic-choice will all be covered in detail.

Instructor Introduction: My name is Philip Wilson. I am a senior in history and classical studies at Chapel Hill. I have written ten essays per semester every year of college, averaging ten pages per essay. I have been awarded several grants and awards for such writing, including the Manson A. Stewart award for undergraduate classical scholarship, the Class of 1938 Grant, the Snow Award, and the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship, etc. Students working with me will find a teacher ready to “educate,” in the Latin sense of “leading out,” whatever writing skills they already use in their own natural communication. Writing the admissions essay is an exercise in taking their ordinary experiences and transforming them through language into memorable reading. That is what I have been trained and awarded to do for some years now.

During the course, students will develop two of their own original college admissions essays.
