The essay writing seminar to build your best future

One Earth Writing’s essay workshop guides high school students through an exploratory writing process to understand their identities, articulate how they want to make a difference in the world, and explore which colleges, universities, technical programs, or post-high school next steps will help them achieve their goals.
