How do I apply?

If you’re ready to apply, scroll to the application buttons at the bottom of this page.

Please have the following ready to submit your application:

01 Credit card and contact information. 

No payments will be processed until your application is approved by your tutor (regardless of which payment option you select).

02 Your writing sample. Your file must:

  • Start with a short paragraph about yourself and your writing experience. 

This helps the online tutor understand more about you and your writing, to give context for your application. You could include details about your novel, other pieces you’ve written, courses you may have attended etc. (It’s perfectly fine if you haven’t completed any courses in writing!)

  • Include a 1500-word sample of your writing. 

Ideally, this should be from the novel you intend to be working on during the program.If you would rather send another piece of writing instead that’s fine, but please do mention it is not from the novel you will be working on in the program.

  • Saved as a Word document with your name included in the filename.

03 What else do I need to know?

Just a couple more things:

  • It takes no more than 4 days for your application to be reviewed – and we’ll keep you updated if it will be any longer than that.
  • You need a minimum of 20,000 words of your novel written to gain entry into the program. It’s not a hard-and-fast rule, however, you’ll be very busy if you don’t get at least this much written before the start of the program.

04 I’m ready to apply
