Me, Myself and I: Presenting Ourselves Effectively in Writing
Struggling with a cover letter to a prospective employer? A personal statement for a competitive internship? An email to a professor with whom you'd like to work? Then bring your draft, however rough, to this workshop sponsored by Princeton Writes, a University-wide program committed to helping you communicate more effectively and confidently outside the classroom.
Working with Princeton Writes director and former presidential speechwriter John S. Weeren and a small group of fellow undergraduates, you will have an opportunity to collectively hone your self-presentation skills. After discussing a number of keys to success, participants will share their drafts with one another before exchanging suggestions in a mutually supportive spirit. Please bring five copies of your draft...and an appetite for cupcakes.
