How to submit your essay or writing piece for feedback


How does it work?

  1. You securely submit your writing piece.
  2. Our essay readers and you will receive a group private message (PM) where Q&A can happen as a group.
  3. Individual members of the Essay Readers group will provide feedback to you directly via PM.

SImple steps for how to submit your essay or writing piece

  1. Please send a PM to @compmom for feedback. The form to contact the essay reader group will be back online soon!
  2. Wait for the essay readers group to provide feedback. You will receive a notification on CC when it is ready for review.

After the review of your writing piece is complete, it would be helpful for others if you left a review of the feedback you received to encourage others to take advantage of the process. Reply in this thread with your thoughts.

How do we pm?

@CC_Jon can you please find out what the status is with this function?

Bascially I take all the essay writers on this thread. The thread does not work as originally intended. @tommyshelby I will PM you.

Sure thing. I might need to start a new form/mechanism, but we can certainly do better on this.

Sorry if I’m missing something - how should we go about pming you?

Alby I cannot PM
you. Your account is private. Usually I PM anyone who posts here and then you can send an essay on that PM thread.

I think I just changed it to public? Sorry about that! Thank you :slight_smile:

You can PM someone whose account is private by starting the PM from your account by clicking the envelope icon, then entering the person’s username/handle.

Hi @compmom, I couldn’t figure out how to PM you directly, but it would be awesome if I could send my essay for feedback. Thanks!

I will PM you @ YellowMelon

Hi @compmom. I am also looking for feedback on my common app essay but am not able to send you a PM. Please let me know if you would be able to review it. Thanks!

Will do.

Hi, I never received a PM from you. Is there any chance you would still be willing to take a look at my essay?

Sorry I missed you! Pm’ing now.

Hi @compmom -
