Transfer Essay Workshops FALL 2012
Check the monthly Writing Center Workshop Calendar for dates and times.
Transfer Essay: Expectations: This is a discussion and critique of sample transfer/admission essays. Students will learn what admissions departments look for and how to write an essay that will catch attention.
Creating a Topic and Developing Paragraphs (Getting Started on Your Transfer Essay): “I have many ideas, but I don’t know which one will work?” Create a workable topic that will speak clearly about you and that will lead to a fully developed essay. All participants will leave with a thesis statement and topic sentences, or a paragraph to drive the content of their essay.
Refining your Final Draft: Participants will use a consultative process to refine and further develop essays. They will also learn strategies for correcting grammar and punctuation.
Transfer Essay "Jam Session" Covers the elements taught in the other 2 workshops (Expectations plus Topic and Development).
Suggestion for Transfer Applicants: For refining your final draft, we recommend you schedule an individual tutoring appointment. To make a 45 minute appointment, go to the Writing Center webpage at moorparkcollege.edu/writingcenter. Help is also available through e-mail and online. Send request to MCWritingCenter@vcccd.edu
