What’s in a Personal Statement? Working out what to say, and why

Date: Friday 27th April

Time: 3:00 – 4.30pm

Location: 12 Washington Place

Description: We often feel blocked trying to pick the most appropriate story to tell, and our options might appear too obvious, complicated or tangential. This writing workshop is designed to address these anxieties by rethinking the broader goal of a personal statement. We’ll also evaluate our assumptions about how much of a personal statement is narrative, and how much of it is analysis. You’ll leave this workshop with a working draft of a personal statement. (It’s recommended you attend this workshop after “Seeing Your Story,” but it’s not strictly necessary.)  RSVP Here
