we are

college essay specialists.

We have helped hundreds of students write essays that share the best of who they are with colleges. We offer personalized support at your pace and within your budget, through workshops, one-on-one sessions and online review.

Let’s get started. Find your voice.



We offer several workshops throughout the season: a Summer Personal Statement Workshop, a Fall Supplements Workshop, and “Stay Composed” Interactive Editing Sessions.

One-on-one sessions

You can also work with us one-on-one to learn about the most effective approaches to college application writing, brainstorm your topics, plan your essays, and get feedback on your drafts.

Online Review

Once you have begun work with us (either in a workshop or a one-on-one session), you can send us your essays on Google Docs for online review.

“Working with Kate made the college application process comfortable, manageable, and exciting. Kate really understood who I was as a person and how I wanted to present myself in my essays. Whether I met with Kate for a one-on-one or sent a draft over email, all of her input made me feel confident and excited for what I was going to write next.”
