I'm ready to start!
Our intensives are a real response to this problem: Your college essay writing process should not be stressful, dull, or isolating.
Writing with us, you’ll achieve the triple threat of teenage life: be with friends, feel more alive, and gain some skills you can actually use again and again and again. Take a heart-felt risk to learn about yourself in great company.
All of our workshops are designed for you to achieve this teenage trifecta– social, supportive, skillful.
What if, instead of “just” a college essay, you left an intensive with something that was truly meaningful? We believe we can play big, not small, when it comes to meeting requirements of admission. You can get the most out of your writing process, not just the minimum.
Tell me more about upcoming intensives.
Our college admissions essay writing intensive cultivates bold, genuine self-expression for students who want their essence to be seen, heard and felt.
From raw exploration of life material, we help you find and tell your singular, stand-out story.
To bring out the freshest words in the freshest way, we lead you through physical practices, drawn from yoga, conditioning and self-defense, that get your whole body involved. We work in community because it magnifies the energy and productivity.
All students deserve to know themselves fully, and be known in that way. At this transformative time, you’ll make that a priority.
