Enrollment limited to 14 students. This section is for all undergraduates; attend the first day of class to receive instructor permission. Permission will NOT be granted in advance.
Courses that Require a Writing Sample as an Application to Apply
A writing sample is required as an application to apply to all Barnard creative writing courses. As space is limited in creative writing courses, not all students who apply are guaranteed admittance.
Students are unable to self-register for Barnard creative writing courses. Interested students who have submitted writing samples may put the course on their online schedule, which will automatically place them on the wait list. If they are accepted, the professor will take them off the wait list, but until that time no one is officially registered for the class.
Admission lists will be sent to applicants emails as the department receives them from instructors. If an admission list is not sent for a class before its first meeting, attend it.
Please note: if you are accepted into a creative writing course, attendance at the first meeting of the course is mandatory. If you do not show up for the first class, your spot may be given to someone else.
If you have any further questions about writing samples or how to apply to creative writing courses, email Sarah Hilligoss.
