One Earth Writing, a nonprofit focused on building confidence in teens and connecting them with peers across racial, religious and socioeconomic lines through writing workshops, is launching a three-part seminar this fall to help high school students write the college application essay.

Intended for sophomores and juniors, but open to seniors currently applying to colleges and universities, the seminars meet for three sessions where students develop the writing skills to help their voice stand out from the crowd during the application process. Session one focuses on “who am I and who do I want to be”; session two empowers students to actively select colleges that will help them achieve their goals; and session three puts everything together toward finishing an essay that responds to one of the Common Application questions.

“Because One Earth Writing focuses on empowering teens, we wanted to help take some of the stress out of the college application process and help students realize they have power in this process,” says Lynne Golodner, CEO and founder of One Earth Writing.

Five sessions will be offered during the 2018-2019 academic year. For locations and dates, visit
