Getting started on college essays

Carolyn Field will offer a free college essay workshop on Wednesday, June 22, from 6 to 7 p.m., at Wilton Library. She will review the Common Application essay prompts and provide guidance on how to approach them and how to brainstorm for an appropriate topic. She will also review pitfalls to avoid and share examples of effective essays written by former high school seniors.

Field is a college essay consultant, freelance writer, marketing consultant, and former editor of Wilton Magazine.

Although the workshop is intended for rising high school seniors, parents are also welcome to attend. Reservations are recommended. Call Susan Lauricella at 203-762-3950, ext. 6343.
