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

Seeing Your Story: Past, Present & Future

Date: Thursday 19th April

Time: 12.30-2pm

Location: 12 Washington Place

Description: Even before we can begin writing a personal statement, we need to develop a sense of the stories we can tell about our lives, and the way we can frame connections between the past, present and our future. This workshop is designed to get you thinking about the thru-lines of your life, and how those narratives give you confidence and consolidate your sense of purpose. Come prepared to brainstorm and write! RSVP Here
