Total cost is $1985. A $985 nonrefundable deposit is due upon acceptance.

Two-week workshops require a $35 nonrefundable submission fee. If you are accepted into the workshop, this fee will be applied toward your tuition.

If you are not admitted to a two-week workshop and wish to register for something else, your $35 submission fee can be applied toward another workshop. If you apply for a two-week intensive workshop and want to register for another workshop as a back-up, you may. We will transfer your registration and apply your fees toward the two-week workshop if you’re accepted.

Applications for the Novel and Memoir Manuscript Two-Week Intensive Workshops are due Tuesday, April 9, 2018. Pay your $35 submission fee by calling the Center for Conferences at 319-335-4141, or via online registration at https://centerforconferences.uiowa.edu/conferences. Then email submission materials (detailed in the course description) to ISWF-Submissions@uiowa.edu. Please include the workshop title (Novel or Memoir Manuscript Workshop) and your name in the subject line.

We will notify you of decisions for two-week intensive workshops by Friday, April 26. If accepted, you must pay your nonrefundable deposit of $985 by Tuesday, May 7 to secure your spot. Full payment is due Tuesday, June 4. No refunds will be made after June 4.

If admitted to the two-week intensive workshop, plan to submit your full manuscript to the instructor via email for distribution to fellow workshop members no later than Tuesday, May 14.
