Description


In something of a sequel to her acclaimed book The Art of the College Essay, UNSTUCK focuses on the "inner game of writing" -- the fear, anxiety and befuddlement that often come when face to face with a blank page.Bestselling author Gabrielle Glancy zooms in on this particular moment and offers solutions to help students break through their blocks, find their voices, and get into the school(s) of their dreams - the honest way.Glancy writes: "In this time of scandal, people in my profession have had to distinguish themselves from those who have lied, cheated, stolen and scammed to get their students into top-choice schools.What the scammers have done is demonstrate a decided lack of trust in the student him or herself. In effect, they are saying: You can't do this yourself - the honest way. You have to fool the colleges into accepting you."UNSTUCK provides students with the concrete and practical solutions - rather than hackneyed formulas - for cracking through the distinct blocks all writers face.In this new book, Gabrielle Glancy once again takes the anxiety out of the college admissions essay-writing process and replaces it with a completely organic, common sense way of getting to the heart of what one is trying to say.At once memoir, philosophical exploration and practical guide for students writing their college application essays UNSTUCK offers water in the desert, escape hatches where there seems to be no way out, and tricks of the trade. This little gem of a book is the light at the end of the tunnel for anyone doing battle with the blank page.Glancy demonstrates that a compelling, authentic, beautifully written essay that comes from the heart can tip the scales in students' favor.
