• A Professor's Guide to Writing Essays: The No-Nonsense Plan for Better Writing

    This isn't a typical book on writing essays. First, it's for college students, graduate students, and even high school students - good writing is good writing; all that changes is the length and complexity of what you write. But the plan stays the same. Second, I'm not going to tell you any cute stories about writing. I'm not going to tell you the standard information about writing. Nor am I going to give you a simple formula for writing an essay. They don't work, and in the long run, they won't help you. What I am going to do is give you a plan for how you should approach writing essays. This... [Read More]

  • Write Your Way In: Crafting an Unforgettable College Admissions Essay (Chicago Guides to Writing, Editing, and Publishing)

    Writing, for most of us, is bound up with anxiety. It’s even worse when it feels like your whole future—or at least where you’ll spend the next four years in college—is on the line.

You already have the “secret sauce” for crafting a compelling personal essay: your own experiences and your unique voice. The best essays rarely catalog how students have succeeded or achieved. Good writing shows the reader ho... [Read More]
