GPCW Second Concentration Application Form

After completing your first Graduate Program in Creative Writing concentration, you may apply for a second concentration. In order to be considered, you must be in good academic standing and submit all three required documents. Please submit this form by Dec. 1.

You will be contacted with a decision on your application no later than Dec. 13. Please note: although you can still apply for a second concentration after Dec. 1, we cannot guarantee that there will be a spot available for you in the incoming cohort. For questions or concerns, please contact Michelle Wilk at mwilk@western.edu.
