Apply to the Essay Incubator by July 22nd

The Essay Incubator is designed for all different types of essayists, including those working on essays that are personal/narrative in nature; lyric/experimental; reported/journalistic; or in other styles and forms, whether intended for literary, commercial and mainstream publications. Students will deepen their understanding of essay craft, forms and modes, and learn skills to revise their own essays while gaining practical insight and advice on publishing, the marketplace, and career-building as an essayist.

Here's what former incubees had to say about their Essay Incubator experiences:

"I no longer wrote just about what happened, but I came to an understanding about why it mattered and could more readily convey my insights onto the page." - Jennifer Dines

"Ethan Gilsdorf is a tremendous instructor who will meet each writer wherever they are and help them to harness their potential while filling their cup with interesting works and insights about the writing process and publishing industry." - Kendra Stanton Lee

Ready to draft, revise, and publish your work? Don't wait: apply to the Essay Incubator before the deadline on Monday, July 22 at 11:59pm. Get all the details on the submission guidelines, the instructor, the curriculum, and scholarships.
