  STUDENTS APPLYING TO THIS MAJOR OR MINOR MUST HAVE HONOURS STANDING
 The Creative Writing Program emphasizes literary writing. We do not accept
                             formulaic writing.
PLEASE NOTE: In order to apply to major or minor in Creative Writing you must have completed the
prerequisite course HUMA 2900 Introduction to Creative Writing and be in the process of completing at least
your second year of university study. If you have not completed HUMA 2900, you need to apply to take
HUMA 2900. Applicants can only apply to the major or minor after completion of this course.

     (c.)     If yes, what other major or minor do you plan on pursuing? Specify as such.
              __________________________________________________________
     (d.)     Should you not be granted admission into the Creative Writing major, would you like
              your application to be considered for the Creative Writing minor degree option?
              YES ____       NO ____

4.           Are you applying to the Minor and the upper level mixed-genre workshops?
             YES ____ NO ____

            Students applying to the major or minor should show strength in two (2) genres and
            should submit a portfolio of 15-20 pages (typed and double-spaced) attesting to this
            strength (prose fiction fragments will be accepted).

            Students who wish to enter any of the Fine Arts workshops in play or screen-writing
            should contact those departments directly for requirements (Film & Video, 224 CFT,
            (416) 736-5149 ; Theatre, 318 CFT, (416) 736-5172). Students who are denied entry as a
            Creative Writing major or minor by the Creative Writing Committee may be allowed into
            upper level workshop(s). Such students may re-apply the following spring to the major or
            minor.

            It would be wise, however, during this conditional year, for students to take at least one
            of the non-workshop courses required of the major or minor, so that later transfer to
            the major will be facilitated. (See the Creative Writing Mini-Calendar or the Division of
            Humanities Calendar for the list). Until actual acceptance into the Creative Writing
            Programme as majors, Students should choose another major (e.g., English or Humanities)
            and apprise themselves of the requirements of that degree programme.

            NOTE: No oral or written feedback is available from the Creative Writing
            Committee on individual applications and/or portfolios. The decision of the Creative
            Writing Committee is final.
