The Big One Application


Hello Sweet Applicant!

Before we get started, we want to go over a few key things.

  1. We're not judging you. We're not looking for the "best" applicants, or writers, or people. We're looking to create a group that has a lot of diversity in writing approaches and styles, and that has a certain inexplicable chemistry. We don't even know what that looks like just yet, but we're confident that we'll know when we see it.

  2. Don't forget that there are other Firefly classes! We made the deadline on this tight so that you will still have time to hop into another Firefly class if this one doesn't work out this round.

  3. Thank you for being here! Just filling this out is a powerful act of commitment to your writing life. It means a lot to us that you want to do this work at Firefly, and we look forward to connecting to you when the time is just right.

As you may know, we have two scholarship spots available. One is for People of Colour including Black and Indigenous people, and one is for anyone who wants to apply. They'll be allocated first-come-first-served based on when your application form came in. We ask that you apply for these spots only if money is a serious obstacle to you taking this class. Would you like to apply for one of these scholarship spaces?
