We also ask that each student send us a short introduction essay about themselves, and why they’re taking part in our course.

Rolling Admission:

We have a rolling admission policy for all of our programs. You may apply at any time up until the deadline for each specific program. When all spots are taken, the course is full and we place subsequent applicants onto a waiting list.

School Policies:

Before registering, please read our School Policies.

About the essay for extended programs: Please keep in mind that you’re not applying to a doctorate program in English composition or creative writing. But since the possibility of us meeting in person before the course is low, we ask you to write a short essay in order to get to know a little bit about you. We don’t use it as a basis for admission decisions. We only use it to get a feel for who you are and where you’re coming from. So if you’re the type who stresses about things like this, don’t. Sit down with a piece of paper and write like you’re introducing yourself to a friend of a friend.

Pre-Program Paperwork

Before the start of each course or trip all participants are required to fill out and sign both the Liability Release Form and the Acknowledgement Of Risk Form, linked below. For long-term programs, you will also be required to fill out a medical history which we will provide upon registration.

For any questions about registration, or about one of the courses please email Christopher Russell at
