College Essay Writing Camp


Instructor, Chuck Jones
Mondays July 6, 13, 20 & Wednesdays July 8, 15, 22
11 am - 1 pm

The college application process can be scary, and perhaps the scariest part is writing the college essay. But it doesn’t have to be! Over three weeks this summer, in a safe and comfortable environment, you will get a chance to explore the best topics, find the “real you” that colleges want to know, write and rewrite for strength and clarity, avoid the common mistakes and clichés, and best of all, have your essay ready before you start applying in the fall!

The fee for the three-week "camp" is $150 and will run on Mondays & Wednesdays from 11 am - 1 pm. The class size is limited to 10 students.

Chuck Jones is a veteran educator and writing instructor with almost 50 years of experience helping people understand and express themselves in a wide variety of writing genres from haikus to novels. A Graduate Fellow of the National Writing Project, Chuck has taught writing to students from middle school to graduate school. As the director of a graduate program at George Washington University, he helped ESL teachers set up writing workshops in their classrooms. An especially enjoyable part of his MFA program in theater directing at Catholic University was working with playwrights to shape their work for the stage. Several members of Chuck’s writing groups have gone on to careers as successful writers. All of them have enjoyed the relaxed and stress-free workshop format and the company of fellow writers.
