6. Letter of Intent

No standard boilerplate submissions. You want to earn a degree in Creative Writing? Then tease us with your creative potential. Pick a prompt below and send 500 words to admissions@lcad.edu or via mail to Laguna College of Art + Design, Office of Admissions, 2222 Laguna Canyon Road, Laguna Beach, CA 92651.

And whatever you do, don’t send us that generic letter. You know the one.
