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.
Prerequisite: one 200-level CRWR course with a grade of B– or better in the genre for which they are applying prior to Fall term enrollment.
Recommended: a second 200-level course in addition to one 300-level CRWR course, both with a grade of B– or better, in the genre for which they are applying prior to Fall term enrollment.
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:
