Are you a high school senior working on a your Common App essay? Got a university-specific essay you want a fresh set of eyes on? Sometimes authors like to offer query help for authors looking for agents, which I do on occasion, and I thought I’d pay it forward with college apps as well. How am I qualified to do this? I’ve been a high school counselor for 11 years and have read hundreds of essays.
Here’s the deal:
- You must be a high school senior graduating in 2018.
- You must have a completed draft of an essay to share – doesn’t have to be polished, but it does need to be finished.
- Essays should be in Google doc format and ready for my comments.
- I’ll take the first 10 responders via this post. Just leave a comment and I’ll give you the green light when I’m ready for you to send. Do not send until you’ve heard from me.
- I’ll turn them around within a week.
Sound good? Feel free to share with any senior who might be interested. Happy writing!
