College Application Essay Camp is Coming in July!

Need help with a college application essay?

Come to the library for a class this summer with Marylyn E. Calabrese, Ph.D., writing coach and teacher.  She has helped thousands of students in preparing successful college application essays.

She is the former chairperson of the Conestoga High School English Department.  Her educational background includes an A.B. from Bryn Mawr College, an MAT from Wesleyan University, and a Ph.D. in Teaching Writing from the University of Pennsylvania.

The class will take place from 12-3 on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, during the week of July 10.  The cost is $200 with all proceeds going to the Tredyffrin Library.  Space will be limited so that students can have individual feedback on their drafts.

Please contact Laurie Doan at Ldoan@ccls.org or 610-688-7092 x 200 to let her know if you’re interested in this class and which week you prefer.  For more information about the class, contact Dr. Calabrese at writedrmec@aol.com.
