Thank you for your interest in the Chapman University Writing Workshop, however the submission period is now closed.
Aspiring fiction writers may be one step closer to their dreams as Chapman University launches a new free writing workshop taught by renowned novelist and short-story master Richard Bausch, who joined the Chapman creative writing faculty this fall. The workshop is open only to members of the community (not to students
at Chapman, who already have many opportunities to take writing classes). "We don't put any limitations on applicants, either by age
or by background. Who can tell where the next good writer will come
selected participant could be a high school student, unemployed, a
doctor, a lawyer, a teacher, a custodian or restaurant worker, a retired
person, a truck driver. Frankly, the more diversity in the class, the
better. We encourage everyone to apply – so dust off that manuscript
you've been working on, or write a new one and submit it." said Bausch.
Applicants should submit a manuscript of no more than 20 pages by January 25, and Bausch will personally read all submissions and select the participants for the 2013 workshop. The workshop will commence meeting with Bausch once a week on February 15, 2013, and will take place each Tuesday thereafter for 14 weeks. Selected participants will be contacted with more detailed information about meeting times and locations.
