Required professional recommendation: Applicants must give the name and email address of one professor (or practicing writer) familiar with the applicant's work. This person would be contacted should the review committee have questions about an applicant.
To ensure a spot in these small classes and to guarantee accommodation, apply early. Applicants will be contacted via email.
Tuition fees are €650 for the first course and €600 for any additional courses. These prices include course fees, a welcome dinner, and an overnight stay at a mountain retreat in the Black Forest (meals at retreat included). Tuition and accommodation (if accommodation is booked through the program) must be paid in full by June 1, 2016. However, we encourage accepted applicants to pay for tuition as soon as possible since we cannot reserve spots in the courses for an extended time. We also ask that accommodation is paid for as soon as possible so we can make sure we are able to book a room/bed for the participant in case the participant chooses to arrange for accommodation through us.
A limited number of scholarships (in the form of partial fee reductions) are available to qualified students who apply early.
