(3) What is your idea for your project (if you have one)? (Please explain in no more than 100 words)

(4) How far have you got with it (if at all)?

(5) When would you prefer to start, ideally – November or December? (please rank in terms of preference)

(6) Which version of the course are you applying for –

NB Further details about the different course options here:

Writers will be selected according to their strong likelihood of seeing their project through to completion. However, the first four modules of the course are available to everyone, on a self-study basis, for £36. A waiting list will also be maintained for the full course, in case cancellations mean that new places can be offered.
