I'm Kate Callahan, founder of Art of the College Essay. I invite you explore this page to get a better sense of my passion for expression. After browsing this page you may know if I'm the right person to help you with your essay.

Expression through writing, music, and teaching has been a passion since I turned twenty-three years old and recorded my first CD (many years ago!). I taught my first creative writing workshop one year later. Enormous dedication and a commitment to authenticity have given me the fortune of winning awards for my music, teaching, and writing research. The awards mean a lot, but they never exceed the gift of learning from life and being true to myself. This is what I hope for in every student I meet.

Keeping Things Whole


In a field
I am the absence
of field.
This is
always the case.
Wherever I am
I am what is missing.

When I walk
I part the air
and always
the air moves in 
to fill the spaces
where my body's been.

We all have reasons
for moving.
I move
to keep things whole.
