application & enrollment

Two basic types of workshop are offered: “mixed levels” and “advanced.” Advanced workshops require submission of a writing sample as part of the application; mixed-levels workshops are open to writers of all levels and require only a cover letter for consideration.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis until the class is full. To increase your chances of acceptance into the program, you may choose to apply for two workshops simultaneously. In this case, full applications are required for each workshop and you will be asked to indicate a first and second choice. Applicants will generally receive an answer within four to six weeks. Once you are accepted into a workshop, you will be asked to pay a deposit of $200 within seven days.

A waitlist will be established for each class once it is fully enrolled. Please do not be discouraged if your choice of workshop is full, as cancellations are common.
