FEATURED CLASS - Columbia Writing Academy: Writing the College Admissions Essay

Because colleges are placing more emphasis on the admissions essay, prize-winning author Dr. Nancy Sommers and Columbia University have designed this course to help students write a powerful college essay by honing specific writing skills. Through a combination of workshops and tutorials, students will learn new writing techniques and will receive in-depth feedback from the teaching team throughout the process.
