What to Include with your Application Form: Piper's Frith offers mentorship for experienced writers. If an applicant does not have a working proficiency, the staff reserves the right to decline the application. The applicant should demonstrate a dedicated writing history; provide a sample that may need work, but shows promise; and submit a statement of interest that describes a commitment to improving their writing. Applicants who meet these requirements will be accepted on a first-come-first-served basis. Closing date of applications is September 6, 2016.

  • $15 Cdn/US application fee: This is non-refundable, but if accepted, is part of the total $575 Cdn cost. 
  • 6-8 page sample of your writing: This does not have to be what you plan to work on, but should be representative of your work.  
  • Statement of interest in this experience (this is a very important piece!): Briefly describe your reasons for wanting to participate; what you hope to achieve; what you plan to work on.
  • Brief biography (100-200 words is fine) -- This could contain publication credits, writing experience, writing awards, creative writing courses or credentials, and/or how you engage with writing in your life.

Please ensure your name appears on all pages! If your name differs on application, samples or payment, please let us know this.
