The deadline for manuscript submission is MAY 18, 2015.

At the conference, the teaching faculty will read a limited number of manuscripts.  If you would like to have a manuscript consultation, register promptly. By the deadline above, please mail a representative sample of your work in one genre; for example, ten poems, the first chapters of a novel (plus an outline or summary); or several short stories or nonfiction pieces. Please do not send more than 35 pages of material. Feel free to bring longer portions of your work when you come to campus.  At the conference, Teaching Fellows (junior faculty) will be available to read this additional work informally.  
Please note: you may apply for a Scholarship and/or Fellowship in one genre and submit a manuscript for consultation in a different genre.

Please send your manuscript to us by mail, not email.
