Please submit one short story or a sample of your fiction writing and an application letter addressing what you would like to focus on in the workshop. Attach a cover sheet including your name, class year, email address, cell phone number, and mailbox number. Please also list any creative writing courses you have taken at Wesleyan. No online or faxed submissions accepted. Applications will not be returned.
