- A master’s degree in English or a closely related discipline from an accredited college or university;
- A 10-20 page critical writing sample;
- A portfolio including a minimum of 10 poems; or two or three works of fiction totaling no fewer than 30 and no more than 50 pages. One of the two or three fiction samples may be an excerpt of a longer work (novel, novella, etc.), and fiction samples may include short-short/flash fiction, but we ask that the applicant send at least one complete, stand-alone example of short fiction of 15 pages or more. The Portfolio should be uploaded to the “Writing Sample” section of the online application.
