How to Apply

 

Writing a Novel courses

To apply for a place on our Writing a Novel: Stage 1 course, in either Sydney or Melbourne, applicants are asked to forward a cover letter briefly stating any writing experience and an overview of the idea for the novel identifying what stage it is presently at. Applicants are also required to submit a 1,500-word sample of prose. This process ensures that all applicants are applying for the course best suited to their needs.

All applicants for Writing a Novel: Stage 2 are required to forward a cover letter briefly stating any writing experience and an overview of the idea for the novel identifying what stage it is presently at. Applicants are also required to submit a 2,500 word sample of prose.

Please note that if you have completed Writing a Novel: Stage 1 then you are automatically accepted on to the Writing a Novel: Stage 2 course but may still be required to send in work if you have a different tutor.
