A tuition deposit of $350 is required upon acceptance into the program; this is later credited toward tuition.

There is a Residency Reception/Dining Fee of $65: This fee includes the opening and closing banquets as well as our mid-week receptions. Optional field trips may include additional fees. What additional costs can I expect at the Residencies?

NEW! The Frances and Kermit Rudolf Nonfiction Scholarship is a $1,000 annual award to the most promising manuscript (not already accepted by a publisher) in the field of nonfiction-picture book, easy reader, or a longer nonfiction book. It will be judged on the quality of writing, original research, and innovative format. A onetime award will be given to an MFAC alum writer in July 2013 and every January thereafter to a current Hamline student. July 2013 graduates can submit for next year's award. The award will be judged by an editor or agent in the field.
Please submit the entire manuscript for a picture book or easy reader. For the longer book, submit ten double-spaced pages from the manuscript and a one-page summary of the book's content. Deadline June 1, 2013. Please send manuscripts (paper copies please) to Mary Rockcastle, Director of CWP, MS-A1730, Hamline University, 1536 Hewitt Ave., St. Paul, MN 55104.

"I had a middle-grade novel published prior to entering the Hamline program, but I still felt like there was a lot I didn't know. I was committed to writing and wanted to become a master of the craft, how to go emotionally deeper with stories... with each faculty member, I felt like I gained something new and different and continued to gain confidence."
