2019 Graduate Admissions Webinars: Writing the Statement of Purpose and Recommendation Letter

Writing the Statement of Purpose and Recommendation Letter

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 the most frequently required for admission to graduate programs around the world, and the strength of your 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.

For 2019, we present two separate lectures for admissions documents. Applications must register by October 6, 2019, to receive the discount coupon on first editing orders.
