ADJUDICATION PROCESS

All applications go through a competitive, independent peer jury process to maintain a high level of artistic merit in programs. Jury members weigh applications against a rubric of set criteria to assess quality of writing and readiness for the experience.

Acceptance is determined by:

  • quality of work submitted
  • project description
  • experience and ability to carry out the proposed project
  • literary CV and publication history (n/a for Emerging Writers’ Course applicants)
  • which applicants would most benefit from attending Sage Hill at this point in their development

This adjudication process is usually completed about four weeks after the deadline.

You will be contacted with results after the jury has come forward with its decision.
