Enrollment limited to 14 students. Attend the first day of class to receive instructor permission. Permission will NOT be granted in advance. Students are unable to self-register for this course. Interested students 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.
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.
