Gabrielle Glancy takes the anxiety out of the process and replaces it with an organic, common sense way to get to the heart of what you’re trying to say . . .
Gabby helped me push my limitations . . . She taught me that good writing isn’t just the refinement of grammar and word choice. It is what blossoms from the core of what you’re trying to say, and sometimes that core is unrefined . . . But it is powerful.
I couldn’t have done it without Gabby’s help. She taught me to trust myself and express myself freely. Before I met her, I had a lot of trouble writing. She helped me loosen up and write great essays. Her way of doing it makes it easy. She helped me get into my top choice school!

Ten years as an admissions director showed me just how important it is to write an essay that wakes up college admissions and makes it impossible for them to pass you by. In fact, USAToday interviewed me on this very subject in an article entitled “Waking Up College Admissions.”
Now that SAT’s are optional for many schools, more weight than ever will be given to your college admissions essays. And there’s not just one! Many schools have supplementary essays in addition to the Common App essay, and this year, the Common App itself has added a COVID SUPPLEMENT.
To tip the scales in your favor, you must write an essay that gets the attention of admissions and shows them what you are made of!
But how do you do that?
Writing is hard. And writing the most important essay you’ll ever write in your life is even harder. After all, your future hinges in large part on your college essays.
Over the years I have developed a method that takes the anxiety out of the process of writing and replaces it with a common sense, organic way to write essays that will get you into the college(s) of your dreams.
This method is outlined in my books The Art of the College Essay and UNSTUCK: How to Break Through Writer’s Block, Find Your Voice and Get Into the College of Your Dreams
I recently hosted two ZOOMS on The Impact of COVID on College Admissions. Both, which were for parents and students, were over-enrolled.
This writing workshop WEBINAR is for students only — rising 11th graders and seniors — and will be focused on the following:
What do you write about? How do you find a topic?
How do you begin writing?
What can you do to avoid the anxiety of facing a blank page?
How do you write an essay that’s super compelling?
Recently, I’ve been reading model essays on Facebook LIVE and commenting on the process by which they were written. You can really get a sense of me and of the essays from these videos. Here is a link to the most recent videos I recorded.
