To apply for this class, students should have a pitch, a sample chapter (up to 25 pages), and an outline of their book to apply for the class. Students will be invited to submit these materials, along with a few proposed first pages, to the group on the first day of class as a way to introduce their projects.
Note: applications help us cultivate a dedicated and motivated cohort of writers in each class cycle.
