Apply to Join

You can apply to join the Villa Diodati Expat Writers Workshop. New members are accepted at current members’ collective discretion. We aim to keep the group small enough for member meetings and workshop weekends to remain feasible. The selection process may include submitting sample writing and/or a sample critique.

For your application to be taken into consideration, you must meet all of the following criteria:

  1. You live in Europe; and
  2. You write speculative fiction in the English language; and
  3. You meet our criteria for (semi-) pro-level authorship:
      1. Professional publication (defined roughly the same as for SFWA membership); or
      2. Semi-professional publication in critical mass; or
      3. Professional level workshop experience at a by-audition workshop, such as Clarion, Clarion West, Odyssey, or Boot Camp.
