Courses that Require a Writing Sample to Apply

A writing sample is required to apply to creative writing courses. As space is limited in creative writing courses, not all students who apply are guaranteed admittance.  If a student simply adds the course to myBarnard or SSOL without submitting a writing sample, it will NOT ensure their enrollment.  Directions and the required cover sheet for writing samples are available in the English Department Office (417 Barnard Hall) as well as on the Forms section of this website.  Writing samples with cover sheets should be submitted either to writingsamples@barnard.edu or to Prof. Szell's mailbox in 417 Barnard Hall by 4pm a week before classes begin (August 30 for the fall 2016 semester).  Admit lists will be posted on the Admit Lists section of this website as the department receives them from the professors. Students cannot add these courses to their schedules until after they are admitted. If an admit list is not posted for a class before its first meeting, attend it.

ENGL BC3106: Fiction & Personal Narrative
ENGL BC3108: Introduction to Fiction Writing
ENGL BC3110: Introduction to Poetry Writing
