Title: Improving Your Graduate School Admissions Essays: Statement of Purpose and Recommendation Letters

Instructor: Kevin J. Heintz (MA English), Senior Editor at Wordvice

Wordvice Webinar Series presents a web lecture on writing essential essays for admissions to graduate school. Join writing coach and Wordvice Senior Editor Kevin J. Heintz on a guided tour of the essential graduate school essays: the Statement of Purpose and Letter of Recommendation. These two documents are required for admission to most graduate programs around the world, and the strength of writing, organization, and content in these essays can mean the difference between getting into the school of your choice and being rejected.

This interactive lecture will show you what to include in these documents, how to structure them, where to begin using brainstorming and pre-writing techniques, and how to edit and revise your first draft. The lecture will also include an analysis of a successful Statement of Purpose, a strong Letter of Recommendation, and a workshop on revising and editing your essays.
