When it comes to the college essay, there’s always something to talk about.

You work hard to support your students. Wouldn’t it be great to have a warm, welcoming community of colleagues where you could talk about college essay issues and get the best resources in the business?

We thought so too!

That’s why we created the College Essay Community. Whether you’re looking for a place to engage with colleagues who really get it, or you just want to wander in and grab what you need, we’re here for you.

Join any time, and get:

  • 12 months of resources, tips and conversation.

  • Strategies to help you become a stronger college essay coach: Writing exercises for your students and reflection questions for you.

  • Community-only webinars facilitated by Susan and Kim; we answer your questions, discuss sticky issues and provide solutions. Join live or watch the recordings. They never expire.

  • A resource library, available 24-7, when and where you need it. Recent topics include the business of essay coaching, UC PIQs, running a group workshop, streamlining essay reviews, and managing parent expectations.

  • A vast member directory for those who want to connect.

All of this for $400 (that breaks down to just $33 a month!)

Here’s How It Works

New Topic Each Month

The first week of each month, we announce a timely topic and post reflection questions and resources on our exclusive Community home page. At the end of the month, some of us gather virtually with Susan Knoppow to share best practices, reflect and improve. Meeting recordings never expire.

Individual Reflection

We explore real-world examples on a wide range of topics, from tricky essay prompts 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 group workshop curriculum, complete with leader's guide and student worksheets.

Group Discussion

Members are also invited to stay in touch with one another between sessions. We've created a community in every sense of the word. Participate as much or as little as you like. Answer all of the reflection questions or don’t. Join us for monthly meetings or watch the recordings. Your level of involvement is entirely up to you.

Learn From the Best

Share. Reflect. Engage.

We’ve spent more than a decade training professionals and teaching students how to write college essays. And over the years, we’ve listened to your questions and concerns. We’ve provided countless resources to help you succeed.

But something has been missing.

A community.

You Deserve More

Our industry is full of chat boards, social media groups and webinars. Those are great, but they can only accomplish so much.

The College Essay Community is for everyone who helps students with essays. For some, it’s a place to dive a little deeper, to talk, reflect and challenge ourselves. For others, it’s a never-ending source of ideas, tip sheets and writing exercises. Whatever you need, the College Essay Community is here for you.

We have always loved to share what we know. In the Community, we share even more of our resources and expertise. Members get tip sheets and writing exercises, reflection questions and guidelines. All year round. You can join any time.

Best of all, the Community evolves according to your needs.

We listen to your concerns and reflect on your challenges. And then we share the tips and resources you need. We created the Community because you told us you needed more.

Meet Abbie Rabin of Personalized College Consulting in Englewood, New Jersey.

Abbie has worked with students for more than 20 years, both in schools and as an independent educational consultant. Working with Wow helped her make adjustments to her own practice; she has put away her red pen and has improved her brainstorming techniques. Abbie spends a lot less time on student essays now, and she says she is happier than she’s been in years.

“You are true teachers. Your support and approach are brilliant – and measurably less anxiety-inducing.”
