College Admissions Essay

College Essay Workshops


We help juniors and seniors identify unique and meaningful personal stories, and we give them the space and guidance to tell those stories in their own authentic voices. We will not write essays for students. Instead, we help students find their voices, give them the confidence to use them, and ultimately provide guidance on structure and editing. Each and every word is the student's own. At Writopia Lab, we witness the power of authentic young voices every day. Your child will not only leave the program with one to three college essays, but with a new confidence in his or her own writing.
