College Essay Community

Join the conversation

When it comes to the college essay, there’s always something to talk about. Join our supportive and engaging community to share ideas, solve problems and dig into best practices together. The first week of each month, we announce a timely topic, along with reflection questions and resources. At the end of the month, we gather virtually to share best practices, reflect and improve. You can join any time. Membership lasts a full 12 months, at which point you can renew if you want!

Learn from the best

Monthly meetings are facilitated by Wow CEO Susan Knoppow, and members are encouraged to stay in touch with one another between sessions. We explore real-world examples on a wide range of topics, from the new Common App prompt to managing worried parents, brainstorming ideas with students who don’t know what to write and reviewing essays quickly and efficiently.  We even share our curriculum for running a successful live or virtual workshop.

If you enjoy our free Pro Chats but wish they went deeper, the College Essay Community is for you! Join any time.
