Good news! If you missed the pre-registration deadline for the advanced creative writing workshops (ENGL 326, 337, and 342), please note that there is now a second deadline: January 18, 2010, the Monday before the semester begins.
To apply for these courses, please submit 5 pages of your writing (in prose or poetry, depending on the course to which you are applying) along with a cover page that includes the following information: 1) your name, email address, year in school, major (if any), some of your favorite writers and any other influences, and 2) a short biographical paragraph describing your history and/or interest in writing.
Please submit these materials electronically in a single attachment to the professor who is teaching the course (see below) by 10 a.m. on Monday, January 18, 2010. Please use either Microsoft Word or rich-text-format for your attachment.
You may take one of these workshops along with either Hilton Als’s “James Baldwin in Black and White” or Paul La Farge’s “Space and Place in Fiction”; however, you may not take two courses designated as “advanced workshops” (ENG 326, 337, or 342) concurrently. If you are applying to more than one of these courses, please include the ranking of your request on your submission.
This information will also be available on the WesMaps pages for these courses.
