Applying to the Kidd Tutorial 

Kidd Tutorial students are those who are motivated to develop their writing and their literary craft through serious intellectual engagement—and who, as a rule, are already experienced in university-level writing workshops.

Many Kidd Tutorial students also pursue a minor in creative writing.

If, after reading carefully through our website, you have questions, please contact the Kidd Tutorial Director or Kidd Tutorial Fellow at any time during the year:
