Re: [Mikaeltb] Writing Sample

All that pongo said, and consider sending pieces that contrast, the equivalent of auditioning with a ballad and an uptempo if you were applying to music school. It sounds as if you are applying for poetry, true? In which case you have an opportunity to include a range of work if your verses are on the short side.

Prose writers must often find their best work that fits in 20 pages, making it harder to incorporate more than one piece.

(Aside: not only do admissions people want to be blown away, but they also want to know how their program can help you grow as a writer. Including some goals for your writing in your statement of purpose is a good thing.)
