Getting Personal: Craft Your College Application Essay with Dotdash Meredith
Wednesday, July 27
2:30-5 PM ET
Online event, open to all young adults who are woman-identifying or gender expansive + Dotdash Meredith employees
Dotdash Meredith and Girls Write Now meet for an intergenerational exchange to help young writers take their college application personal statements to the next level!
After mentees have a short lesson in writing the personal statement and dedicated time to draft their essays, Dotdash Meredith employees—“Mentors for the Day”— will work with mentees to strengthen their essays in small group breakout rooms. Mentees will give and receive constructive feedback on their drafts, or partial drafts, using our Active Listening technique, a tried and true methodology.
“Mentors for the Day” will also answer questions about their college and career journeys. Don’t miss this opportunity to work on writing while enjoying an intergenerational gathering of insight, networking and wisdom!
