Courses that Require a Writing Sample (as an Application) to Apply
A writing sample is required 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.
Directions on how to apply to creative writing courses are available on the Forms section of this website.
The submission deadline for the fall 2019 semester is 11:59pm, August 13, 2019. Admit lists will be posted on the Admit Lists section of this website as the department receives them from the professors. If an admit list is not posted for a class before its first meeting, attend it.
