Who may apply?

Anyone who is at least 18 and registered as a student in fall 2020 may apply. You can be a student at a community college, a four-year school, or a grad student. In order to produce the best product and get the full experience, students MUST be available for the entire program: Friday, September 4 (5 p.m.) through Monday, September 7, 2020 (12 p.m.).

This project usually attracts students majoring in English, Communications, Digital / Electronic or MultiMedia, Graphics Arts / Design, and Social Sciences, as well as students in honors and leadership programs. We encourage students from all disciplines to apply, as long as you meet the minimum requirements for that category.

The program has expanded to include all colleges and universities in the mid-Atlantic area. We encourage students from other states to apply, keeping in mind that Writing Wrongs cannot assist with transportation costs at this time.

Submit the initial application form below, and you will receive instructions on what to include in your official application packet within one to three days. Be sure to check your spam folder. Email communication is paramount during the application and selection process.
