Yale Writers' Conference Admission

Admissions decisions are made on a rolling basis by the YWC admissions committee.  You will receive an admissions decision within two weeks after you submit a complete application.

Admissions are based solely on the writing sample. The writing sample needs to accompany your application for admission, and must be uploaded electronically. It should be about thirteen hundred words.  Please single space your writing using a 12 pt. font as a Word document. Each page must include your name. You can apply for either or both Sessions I and II.

Once accepted, an applicant is not considered registered until payment has been received. We accept payment via credit card or check.

All writers are assigned to a workshop and in Session I writers are also assigned to a Master Class in the order in which they register. We will make every effort to honor your faculty preference. We will announce the closing of a workshop on our website.

Applicants must be 18 years old by the start of the program.

Date:The application deadline is April 30, 2017.
