Please note: While the conference meets for a week during Summer Session I, students are registered during Summer Session II, the period of revising their manuscripts.

The Indiana University Writers’ Conference (IUWC) offers undergraduate credit for workshop participation in poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. Students will receive two credit hours for enrolling in one workshop, which will meet for two hours Monday through Friday, with shorter meetings on Sunday and Friday, and for revising the workshop manuscript. Your grade will be based upon your revisions and statement of learning, which must be submitted to the IUWC director along with the application manuscripts by no later than August 1.

Students wishing to receive credit and compete for full to partial scholarship support must submit applications and manuscripts by April 15 (late registration may occur until the week of the conference). All students selecting the credit option on their applications will by registered for two credit hours at in-state tuition rates by the conference director. In addition to tuition and non-remittable fees owed directly to the IU Office of the Bursar, a $50.00 application fee and a $500.00 workshop enrollment fee are owed directly to the IUWC ($25 of the $50 application fee will be applied to conference fees at time of billing). All applicants who apply prior to April 15 may be considered for scholarship support to help defray conference costs. Application forms are available online at or by contacting our office via email at, or by phone at 855-1877 to request a brochure.
