Product Description

Escape Essay Hell! is a fast-and-easy guide to writing narrative-style essays for college application essays. Janine Robinson, a former journalist, professional writer and English teacher who has tutored college-bound students on these essays for years, acts as a personal writing coach to guide and cheer students through this dreaded process. College admissions "experts" advise students to "Tell a story," or "Make the essay about you!," or "Be an individual." And this is all correct. But no one ever explains exactly HOW they can do this. Until now. In her motivating guide, Janine takes students through 10 simple steps to find engaging topics and then craft compelling "slice-of-life" essays using storytelling writing techniques. Students will learn how to identify their unique defining qualities, power their essays with engaging mini-stories called anecdotes, and use an effective Show and Tell writing formula. Escape Essay Hell! helps students write personal statements for The Common Application, state universities, private colleges, graduate school, transfer and scholarship essays. By following these informative and inspiring steps, students will escape Essay Hell in no time at all--and have their best shot at landing in their dream school (often despite less-than-stellar grades and test scores)!
