***OCTOBER APPLICATIONS OPEN - A FULLY FUNDED SPOT IS AVAILABLE***
Applicants should be:
- Prose writers. Whether it's fiction, creative nonfiction, memoir, or longform journalism, literary narrative prose is our thing for now.
- Committed. CRIT isn't for "giving writing a try"; you should be keen on pursuing writing and building a career, even if you don't know how. Publication and workshop experience optional but cool.
- Ready to work. You'll burn calories on this. Every week you'll critique 2-3 manuscripts, read another ~50 assigned pages, and attend 4 hours of class. Busy is fun.
- NYC-based. This is an in-person class in Brooklyn. (We're holding off on remote options until we can offer something more than a janky version of our IRL classes.)
The next available session will be in October 2018, and the twice-weekly meetings are on Wednesdays at 7 - 9 and Saturdays at 2 - 4, from Oct 3 - Nov 21. Classes may be rescheduled around holidays, illness, emergencies, REALLY bad weather, or prior commitments.
If you get admitted and accept, you pay a $200 deposit up front; the full amount is due by the first day of class. Financial aid applicants will first provide general financial info, then receive aid based on need. Application questions must be answered truthfully, or else you might just get ejected with no refund. Any questions, check our FAQ or use the contact form.
