Write a one-page, single-spaced letter to the English department explaining why you are interested in this fellowship.  If you have previous experience as a writing tutor or have worked on the editorial team of a creative writing journal, please mention that in your letter.  (Experience, while helpful, is not required for a fellowship.) 

  2. Select a few pieces of your own writing which you believe best represent your work.  Feel free to include more than one genre; e.g., essay, poem, short story, senior thesis, etc.  Please note in your application letter what writing samples you are including.
