About this livestream


Join Priya for another installment of our Live Essay Review!

During this event (designed specifically for current high school students), Priya will select a few pieces of writing submitted by the audience to review LIVE on air. Any type of writing is welcome in this review — college and scholarship essays, papers for class, articles for your school’s newspaper, or even personal projects of your own.

For each piece, Priya will walk through what you’ve written, paying particular attention to any special review requests, and offer suggestions for improvement.

You can submit an essay for review to this form.
