The application deadline for the 2019 conference is June 2nd, 2019. Admissions to the conference are rolling and all applications can be submitted through the online application form. Please be prepared to provide us with a writing sample in the genre to which you are applying. Applicants to book-length manuscript workshops should also submit a synopsis of the project they plan to workshop at the conference. Please see our application for specific guidelines. Writers applying to attend the writers’ residency (not participating in a workshop) do not need to submit a writing sample. If you write in a language other than English, please submit an English translation of your work. Applicants who will be under twenty-one years of age at the time the conference begins (June 22, 2019) should contact the conference directly before applying. We do not require recommendation letters or CVs as part of our application process; a history of publication and/or previous formal workshop experience is not necessary to successfully apply to the conference.
