Synopsis:

Escape Essay Hell! is a fast-and-easy guide to writing narrative-style essays for college application essays.

Janine Robinson, a former journalist, magazine editor and English teacher who has tutored college-bound students on these essays for the last decade, acts as a personal writing coach to guide and cheer students through this dreaded process.

College admissions experts advise students to "Tell a story" or "Make the essay about you!" or "Stand out!"

And this is all correct. But no one ever explains exactly HOW to do this.

Until now.

In her short-and-easy guide, Janine takes students through 10 simple steps to find engaging topics and then craft compelling "slice-of-life" essays using storytelling writing techniques.

Students will learn how to identify their unique defining qualities, power their essays with engaging real-life stories called anecdotes, and use an effective Show and Tell writing formula.

Escape Essay Hell! helps students write personal statements for The Common Application, state universities (University of California, University of Texas, etc), private colleges (from Harvard and Yale to smaller liberal arts schools, such as Brown, Wellesley, Rice, Pomona, etc.), graduate school, transfer and scholarship essays.

By following these simple steps, students will escape Essay Hell in no time at all---and have their best shot at landing in their dream school (often despite less-than-stellar grades and test scores)!
