. In your essay, explain why you feel this is the right program for you at this time in your life.(This should be no longer than two pages.) Include your name, address, phone and email address at the top of the essay.
Two (2) creative writing samples. The samples should best represent you, such as: a film script (short or feature length), and/or a play (short or full length), and/or a short story, and/or an other writing sample you think is appropriate. We will be open to any imaginative piece of work that you feel represents you.
Three (3) recommendations. These should be from teachers, mentors or other applicable sources who are able to write regarding your writing and/or work ethic. Each recommendation should include an email address or phone number where the person may be reached.
DEADLINE for Fall 2015 cohort: June 1, 2015.
