MTSU Write Application Process

Please submit the following items to Amie Whittemore, MTSU Write Director.

  1. Cover Letter with your name, address, and email contact information
  2. Two examples of your writing, no less than one page and no more than five (12pt Times New Roman type face, double-spaced).
  3. A resume listing educational background, applicable life-experience, and a list of publications, if any.
  4. A statement (12pt Times New Roman type face, double-spaced) of your long and short term writing goals, what you intend to accomplish during your time with MTSU Write, why you think we are the right program for you, and why you are the right student for us. Write no longer than is necessary; we are looking to see how well you write, not how many words you can type.

MTSU Write is dedicated to helping you be the best writer you can be. We use the materials submitted less to determine your eligibility for the program and more to help us determine how best to be of service to you. Our passion is to grow writers; we don't expect you to be perfect or published, only perfectible and publishable.
