This event will be held at Oblong Books & Music, 6422 Montgomery St., Rhinebeck, NY.
THIS EVENT IS A MUST FOR HIGH SCHOOL JUNIORS AND SENIORS ABOUT TO EMBARK ON THE COLLEGE ADMISSIONS PROCESS!
Writing a college admissions essay is no easy task—but with college essay coach and New York Times contributor Alan Gelb’s accessible and encouraging step-by-step instructions, you’ll be able to write an honest, one-of-a-kind essay that really shines.
Gelb’s ten-step approach has garnered great results for the students who have tried it, many of whom were accepted into their dream schools (Harvard, Brown, Yale, and more). This to-the-point handbook shows you how to identify an engaging essay topic, and then teaches you how to use creative writing techniques to craft a narrative that expresses your unique personality, strengths, and goals. Whether you’re an A-student looking for an extra boost or a less-confident writer who needs more intensive help, Gelb’s reassuring and concise guidance will help you every step of the way.
Alan Gelb has been a writer for many years in many forms, publishing novels, nonfiction, plays, young adult fiction, and articles. He is also a communications consultant for colleges and universities, writing recruitment and development materials for such institutions as Vanderbilt, RPI, Union, the Culinary Institute of America, Hunter College, and many more. This affords him a unique inside look at the admissions process, which comes in handy when he work with students. At this event, Gelb will discuss why his book CONQUERING THE COLLEGE ADMISSIONS ESSAY IN 10 STEPS is a must-read for all students about to embark on the college admissions process.
