There can be few things more daunting than the blank page on your screen, its lonely cursor pulsating to the rhythm of your increasing heartbeat. 


At the Lyceum, we’re inviting you to ‘fear no more’ as we offer to take your teen through the art of essay writing.  An enduring feature in our summer camp calendar, this offering is one not to be missed. What exactly is a thesis statement and how do you write supporting paragraphs that build interest rather than come across as formulaic? What’s all this stuff about citing sources? We’ll walk you through it step by step, providing you with no-fail techniques for tackling any essay that might be thrown your way. Using the strangest topics you’ll ever come across, we’ll write two essays over the course of this workshop, giving you the chance to try out everything you’ve learned and receive one-on-one feedback from Lyceum staff.
