Smart Student Secrets is developing a summer writing course that can help aspiring writers and students create the kind of writing that gets attention.
Take note: we’re not talking about grammar-nazi style editing. We’re talking about high-impact, drag your reader by their ankles, and get them to LOVE the whole process.
Rules are a part of writing. But they’re not the important part. We’ll help you with those. This course is all about high-impact writing.
- Do you want to know how to write A+ essays?
- Do you want colleges to obsess over your awesome essay?
- Are you considering a career in writing?
Then this course is for you.
What you’re going to get:
- Get professional skill recommendations and assessments based on your writing
- Complete all the challenges to get a certificate of completion
- Complete all the challenges with completed essays to get a certificate of excellence
- Recommendation letters are available to certificate of excellence recipients (Of course, the recommendation is honest based on how much I’d recommend you. They may also be available from an academic reviewer if they deem it appropriate.)
- Extraordinary essays may get bonus offers (like we’ll share them or send you a bonus)
You’re going to be able to submit up to 9 writings for a professional assessment. This writing can be full length essays or a short outline of the essays. We highly recommend you do the full essays every time because the more you write, the more we can help.
