Bangalore Writers Workshop Application

We welcome your application to the Bangalore Writers Workshop. Please read our instructions carefully to ensure the successful completion of your application submission. We accept submissions in English only.


Apply only if you have attended the BWW Classic course. If not, apply for the BWW Classic course instead. 

Copy your writing sample i.e. your short story or an excerpt from your short story. Please apply to the BWW: Classic course if you have not ever written a short story before. 

You need to paste 1000 to 2000 words.

The writing sample must be your original piece of writing. We accept both published and unpublished work.

The sample will be used only to evaluate your creative ability and language skills.

Do not submit poetry or dramatic fiction. 

Evaluation will be done within two weeks provided the course is listed on our calendar. Else, you will have to wait. You will receive a notification mail which will include your score. Our grading scale which evaluates language and creativity ranges from 1 to 10 where 10 is the highest score.

Writers who score between 7 and 10 qualify for the courses offered by the Bangalore Writers Workshop.

If you are denied admission the first time (if your score is between 1 and 6.5), apply at a later time and try again.

We wish you all the inspiration in the world!
