Students can register on the website, but drop-ins are also welcome. Bring finished essays that need editing, or initial ideas for an essay. Bring a laptop if you have one; or bring your essay/ideas on a flash drive or piece of paper.

Another session will be from 1-5 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 4, at the Beacon Hill Library, 2821 Beacon Ave. S.

If students need to do any follow-up work on their essays, or SAT prep, they can attend 826 Seattle’s free High School Tutoring program, from 6-8 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Register for that program online, or at the College Entrance Essay Marathon.
