Literary London Summer 2023 |23–24 May to 30 June–01 July

Priority applications have first choice of classes and deposits insure your place in the program once admitted. Students have always received at least one, if not usually both of their top two choices of classes.

While we encourage you to secure your spot in the program/classes by the Priority Deadline, deposits and applications are accepted until we are full on a case-by-case/rolling basis. You may submit applications without a deposit initially, which will keep you atop our waitlist.
