We want to know your story.

Send us one document with up to five pages of your work: your poems, a short story, a scene, even your novel!

If you're sending prose, make sure you double-space your submission.

Enter your contact information (name, telephone number and email) in the Cover Letter field, as well as a short paragraph on why you’d like to spend three weeks writing with us.

Do note: you'll have to open a free Submittable account if you don't have one already.


Every applicant will receive a personalized response from our team of writers, as well as reading recommendations.

We're reading applications on a rolling basis, but do keep in mind the following deadlines—

First Deadline: March 15, 5 pm
Final Deadline: June 6, 5 pm

The workshop will take place at 92Y in NYC from Monday, July 9 till Thursday, July 26. Teachers and visiting authors will be announced in the Spring.
