In the spring semester a number of seats will be reserved in our Introduction to Creative Writing classes and awarded via application. The form is below, and can also be picked up in the English Department main office.
Application for ENGL 81W Date:
School: Major (if any): Hours completed:
[ ] I am applying ON THE BASIS OF AN INTEREST IN PURSUING CREATIVE WRITING AS A FIELD. If you check this option, please provide a writing sample, up to 10 pp. (preferably but not necessarily a sample of poetry, prose fiction, creative nonfiction, or playwriting). Do NOT give us the only copy of your work! (Samples will not be returned.) Preference will be given to sophomores and freshmen who show achievement and promise as writers.
[ ] I am applying ON THE BASIS OF THE NEED TO GRADUATE. Do not check this option unless you can complete your undergraduate degree this next semester. Please supply a copy of a balance sheet, a statement from your academic advisor, or some other official document indicating that you need a course such as ENGL 81W either for the CCAS Creative and Performing Arts requirement or the University Writing in the Disciplines requirement.
[ ] I am applying ON THE BASIS OF SPECIFIC UNIVERSITY OBLIGATIONS. This is an option for athletes and others with similar University-mandated scheduling restraints. If you are in this situation, please submit pertinent documentation (such as a statement from the team coach).
We will accommodate as many students as possible, but we cannot guarantee a space to any student, regardless of the basis for the application.
APPLICATIONS MUST INCLUDE A COMPLETED RTF (INCLUDING THE COURSE WHICH WOULD BE DROPPED IF THE APPLICATION IS APPROVED).
Submit applications to the English Department (Rome 760).
