What will my application include?
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.)
Writing sample excerpt in fiction, nonfiction, or poetry. This does not have to be published work, though that is acceptable, nor does it have to be a piece you plan to workshop. Complete works under the word count are not required; excerpts are acceptable. (Fiction/nonfiction: 2500 words max. Poetry: 2-3 poems of no more than 5 pages max.).
Applications open on January 6th, 2020.
When will I know if I've been accepted to the workshop?
We cap our workshop participation at 9 writers in each genre cohort (fiction, nonfiction, & poetry) for the week. Our goal is to provide an intimate, rigorous workshop environment so that participants can come to Paris and find meaningful connections and excellent feedback on their work. We will accept applicants on a rolling basis until each cohort is full and then begin waitlists. Due to the volume of applications and competitive acceptance, writers are encouraged to apply early. We employ a reading committee of professional writers and editors, and applicants will be notified after the application window closes.
