APPLICATION GUIDELINES FOR THE WRITER'S HOTEL NYC WRITER'S CONFERENCE: JUNE 5-11, 2019
To apply, please send the first 5000 words of a prose manuscript or the first 15 poems of a poetry manuscript. The writing sample must not exceed 20 pages. International applications are welcome. It is $30 to apply.
The application writing sample must be the first pages of a current "target manuscript". A "target manuscript" is a writer's present writing project--the manuscript that the writer will bring to NYC and present to agents or editors. In the application process, we carefully review the first 5000 words (prose) or 15 pages of poetry of this target manuscript. Prose should be double-spaced.
If we move forward with an application, the writer will be contacted for a brief phone interview. During the interview, the writer will have the chance to discuss their writing and writing goals, and we will offer feedback on those first pages. We notify about acceptance following the interview.
:: Deadline: Saturday, April 6, 2019 at midnight. We look forward to reading your work. ::
