SPRINGFIELD, Ohio – The Wittenberg University School of Community Education will host the Summer Writing Workshop, available to high school students entering their junior or senior years in the fall of 2014, from 8:30-11:30 a.m. Tuesday June 10-Thursday June 12, 2014, in the Wittenberg Writing Center, Room 112 of Hollenbeck Hall.
The workshop focuses on writing college admission essays and special program essays. The cost of the workshop is $75.
An important part of the college application process includes writing and submitting an essay. While colleges generally provide a topic or prompt to guide the essay, high school juniors and seniors can distinguish themselves from other applicants through well-written and distinctive writing.
The workshop will offer guided experiences in writing argumentative and expository essays. During the workshop, the participants will work in small groups and review each other’s essays.
The program is led by faculty and staff from the Office of Admission and the Wittenberg Writing Center, including Michael Mattison, writing center director and associate professor of English; Laura Pitney ’06, assistant director of admission; Jimmy Williams, senior associate director of admission and coordinator of multicultural recruitment; and student writing advisors.
The deadline for the Summer Writing Workshop application is June 3.
