College Essay Guy Workshops and Speaking Engagements

I love speaking at schools and events.


Some options:

One-Hour “Inspiration” Talk
This gets students and parents fired up for the college essay process. Parents will leave inspired and students will leave feeling like they’re ready to start writing. Like, right away.

One-Day Essay Workshops
This 2-3 hr workshop will give your students all they need to start their personal statements. First we’ll brainstorm, then I’ll teach the basics of storytelling structure, provide a couple real examples, and finally answer your students’ questions about their particular essays.

2-3 Day Essay Workshops
We’ll work over the course of a couple days to complete first drafts of your students’ main statements. This provides a chance to work even more deeply on particular essays. 

Create-Your-Own Workshop
Let me know your needs, budget, and time limit and and we’ll co-create something!  

Workshops for Counselors
I also love speaking at conferences and providing professional development. Topics include “Five Questions Every Counselor Should Be Able to Answer About the College Essay” and “What to Do When Your Students Piss You Off: A Non-Violent Communication Primer.”
