The application form below requires you to include a fiction writing sample of 1,000 words maximum. This may be a complete short story or an excerpt from a longer work, but it may not exceed 1,000 words. Those who use an excerpt should specify that it is an excerpt and note whether it is an excerpt from a short story or a novel.
If you submit an excerpt, you are strongly encouraged to submit the beginning of the work. If you do submit an excerpt that is not the beginning of a work, you should note that and provide a brief synopsis that sets up the excerpt. The synopsis counts as part of your 1,000 words.
Your application must be submitted with the $10 application fee.
