YONKERS, N.Y. -- Sarah Lawrence College will host a workshop on Writing Your College Essay on Saturdays from June 6-20, from 11 a.m.-1 p.m.

The instructor is Olivia Worden, who will explore how to develop and write a comprehensive and creative college application essay. Using material generated through prompts that address memory, scene, dialogue, perspective, voice and structure, students will compose a response to one of the common application questions.

Participants will also read and discuss examples of personal essay and cross-genre writing to investigate topics of narrative, theme and personal reflection. In addition, students will have the opportunity to workshop their essays, as well as consult individually with the instructor.

Worden has a bachelor's degree and master of fine arts degree from Sarah Lawrence College. She is a writer, teacher, college essay tutor and diversity trainer from Dartmouth, Mass. She has a background in both admissions and student affairs from her time at Roger Williams University in Rhode Island. She has taught poetry, fiction, performance, facilitation, and college application essay writing in New York, Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
