How to Apply to Online Classes

The application form below requires you to include a fiction writing sample of 1,000 words maximum.  This may be a complete short story or an excerpt from a longer work, but it may not exceed 1,000 words.  Those who use an excerpt should specify that it is an excerpt and note whether it is an excerpt from a short story or a novel.

If you submit an excerpt, you are strongly encouraged to submit the beginning of the work.  If you do submit an excerpt that is not the beginning of a work, you should note that and provide a brief synopsis that sets up the excerpt.  The synopsis counts as part of your 1,000 words.

Your application must be submitted with the $10 application fee.  The application fee can be paid via PayPal (through the link at the bottom of this page) OR you can pay via personal check or international money order in US dollars and send that here:
