workshops: how to participate

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.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis beginning April 24 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 1st and 2nd choice. Applicants will generally receive an answer within four to six weeks.

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.
