NAQT's open application period for new writers will end in 5 days, on Wednesday the 31st.

After some internal discussion, we have slightly amended our "you must have turned 18 on or prior to your date of application" requirement. If your birthday is between August 1 and October 31, you may apply (in the year that you will turn 18, and if you have a high school diploma) during the open application period. If you are accepted, we will wait until your birthday to send you a contract and have you start writing. (In short, if your birthday is within 3 months of the application period, you may apply the summer before you turn 18. If your birthday is more than 3 months after the application period, you will need to wait until the summer after you turn 18.)
