Better tales are there for the writing. This workshop will show you what admissions officers really look for in great college essays, and offer suggestions for finding and sharing your best stories. We'll even share the five most over-used topics you must avoid and give you tips on how to start (and even finish) your essays this summer.

Ms. Hirschorn, a professional writing tutor with more than two decades of experience working with Boston-area students in both classroom and one-on-one settings, tutored writing at the Mount Ida College Writing Center where she was also a supervisor. She holds a Master of Arts in Teaching from Tufts University.
