About the Program and Application Process
The Writing Workshops Paris program is an inclusive literary space, and we welcome adult writers at all stages of their careers.
Acceptance to the workshops is based upon the strength and promise of the writing sample. We operate on a rolling admissions basis, and we do our best to make admission decisions within 15-30 days of receiving applications.
Should the program reach capacity, we will post a notice on the website and this form and begin a waitlist. Applications will continue to be reviewed, and applicants will be notified if put on the waitlist.
If your application is accepted, you will have 7 days to submit a $300 nonrefundable deposit that goes toward your tuition fee of $3250. The remaining balance is due by April 1, 2019. Tuition paid in full prior to February 1, 2019 is discounted to $2995.
There are no refunds of tuition after April 1, 2019, and applications accepted after this date require the full tuition immediately.
We welcome applications from anywhere in the world. Your application should give us a sense of who you are as a writer and consist of the following:
- Brief bio informing us of your involvement in the writing and literary community, as well as any prior or forthcoming publications. (250 words max)
- Purpose statement explaining why you would like to participate in Writing Workshops Paris. You can also discuss current manuscripts or writing projects that you might choose to workshop. (500 words max.)
- A short story or nonfiction essay, ideally no more than 15-20 pages. This does not have to be published, though that is acceptable, nor does it have to be a piece you plan to workshop.
In crafting your application materials, consider work that best represents your unique voice and talent as a writer.
There is a $10 nonrefundable application fee to apply to the fiction or nonfiction workshop.
If you would like to apply to both, you will need to complete a separate application and fee for each. Please note that due to the intensive scheduling, an applicant can only be accepted to either fiction or nonfiction, not both.
