Thursday April 5th at 7pm – Jumpstart Your College Essays

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 juniors on Thursday, April 5 at 7PM. This two-hour session, which will include the opportunity for Q&A, is designed to help up to 25 juniors. 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 presentations conducted at the Kingston Public Library. Roveto is a local writer and marketing strategist whose career list includes industry-leading companies, non-profits, and public sector organizations.
