Thursday, October 18 at 6:30pm – Jumpstart Your College Essay Workshop

High school students are more than their grades, test scores, or activities. Experiences and interests shape what the future holds, too, which is what the college essay is all about. If you are preparing to head to college, the essay is the best way to let schools know who you really are and why you should be considered for acceptance.

The Kingston Public Library is offering a free presentation for seniors on Thursday, October 18 at 6:30pm at the Kingston Council on Aging, 30 Evergreen Street. This two-hour session, which will include the opportunity for Q&A, is designed to help seniors. The topics that will be covered are how to consider the application process and school selection in ways that help tailor essays and applications, understand what colleges want and don’t in an essay. You will learn tricks for approaching the essay and creating a first draft that is really yours, and review how to edit and finish a good essay.

This program is being conducted by Hannah Roveto, a professional marketing writer. She has helped several high school students plan and work through essays and at several presentations conducted at the Kingston Public Library. Roveto is a local writer and marketing strategist whose c areer list includes industry-leading companies, non-profits, and public sector organizations. In addition to writing professionally, she volunteers her skills to help local organizations in which she is active. As a mom she has experienced the college application process first hand, and shares lessons learned with other parents.

This workshop is free. Registration is required and space is limited to 12 participants. To register please call the Kingston Public Library at 781-585-0517 or click on the register button below.
