Submission Instructions

Applications should consist of maximum: 6 typed pages of poetry (only one poem per page) OR 15 pages of prose (double-spaced)

An application fee of $10 — in the form of a check made out to 92nd  Street Y or paid through Submittable — must accompany your submission.  If application fees pose a barrier, please reach out to us via email

Only one fee is required per person, regardless of how many  applications are submitted. If you are applying to more than one  workshop and would like to submit two different writing samples, please email the center directly. Please do not use a poetry submission for a prose class, or vice versa.

Contact and biographical information should be entered in the Cover Letter field; indicate courses you are applying to in the Workshops field.

Scholarships

Please submit your scholarship application for ANY COURSE when you submit your manuscript. You can do so by emailing the center directly, or, if you are applying by mail or in person, include it in the envelope with your submission.

Acceptance

Students will be notified via email. The typical wait period to hear back is two weeks: we want to give  your instructors time to read the application manuscripts carefully.

Once accepted, students are expected to register promptly so that notification of wait-listed students and those not accepted is not delayed. If you need to withdraw, please alert the Poetry Center so that someone from the wait-list may take your spot. If you must withdraw from a class, please refer to 92Y's refund policies.
