How to Write a Killer Essay
Tuesday, 20 February, 2018 - Tuesday, 3 April, 2018
Why learn to write the best essay of your life? Because the best essay of your life may just set you up for life. Essay writing is a skill that, once acquired, you will have forever. It requires planning, preparation and a passion for learning. Our How to Write a Killer Essay course offers a bag of tricks that will not only get you started but will see you type ‘The End’ with confidence and pizazz!!
The six week How to Write A Killer Essay course is tailored for young scholars, aged 10 – 16. The course consists of four weekly webinars, followed by two weeks of drafting and editing. The good news is you don't have to attend 'live'. All the webinars will be recorded and made available after each session. If you have any questions from week to week you will be able to submit these and they will be answered during the webinar.
And don't forget our closed Facebook group (parents welcome). Sam and I will be checking in daily to answer any questions that pop up between webinar sessions.
If you finish your draft you are more than welcome to submit early. No need to wait. You can work at your own pace to complete the reading, research, planning, drafting and editing phases of the course. However, marking of your final submissions will happen after the final submission date.
The final submission for your completed essay is Tuesday, 3rd April, 218. You will be issued with a Certificate of Completion and the best essays will be published in the July issue of Story Slingers Magazine.
