For the FREE place email me directly at by Feb 29th briefly explaining how you are eligible (no financial details necessary), why you'd like to come on this particular course, and what it would mean for your writing. I’m deliberately not being more specific about what “underrepresented community” might mean, I will leave that to each applicant to explain. Please do apply if you’re eligible - and spread the word to anyone you think might be interested in this opportunity!
