CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Aug. 16, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Write the World, a nonprofit organization and online writing community that's served more than 100,000 teens and educators, is celebrating the tenth year of its affordable and flexible College Essay Program, which gives students from all backgrounds the confidence and skills to develop their authentic voice, refine their essays, and increase their likelihood of college success.

Write the World offers free resources, including a 30-minute on-demand webinar to introduce the college essay format, common essay questions, tips on what admissions officers look for, and access to an interactive, 20-page, e-workbook to guide students towards the "right fit" essay topic.

  • "How to Write a Personal Statement for College Application" online course ($197) - This interactive online course gives participants the tools, resources, and guidance to brainstorm, explore, and craft their personal story using their unique voice and distinctive writing style.
  • College Essay Review ($59) - Participants receive a comprehensive feedback report from a team of dedicated advisors – comprised of professional writers and educators – on any essay draft within 48 hours.
