Admitted writers will have two weeks to confirm their attendance and remit payment.  All payments are due by April 15, 2020.

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 in the order in which they register. We will make every effort to honor your faculty preference.

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