I'm deviating from my daily "list". I found this scholarship for Creative Writers. It has a deadline, so want you to have a chance at it! This goes for some of you who never though you'd ever write anything! Come on, give it a go! Have fun!
The Peter K. Hixson Memorial Scholarship for Creative Writers
How The Scholarship Will Be Awarded
Three writers will each receive two rounds of A La Carte PLUS submissions valued at approximately $450 per scholarship (cannot be redeemed for cash value).
Our A La Carte PLUS service includes cover or query letter creation and targeting to 25+ literary agents or journals. If you are not familiar with our A La Carte PLUS Service, click here. Winners will receive two rounds of A La Carte PLUS submissions, with the creation of ONE cover or query letter to be applied to both rounds of submissions. We hope to make Peter proud in our commitment to his artistic ideals and dreams.
Three awards will be made, one in each of the genres that Peter submitted with Writer’s Relief:
•Novel and Memoir
•Short Prose (Short Story or Creative Personal Essay)
No other genres are applicable.
Winners will be selected by the Writer’s Relief Review Board based on 1) strength of writing sample, 2) strength of personal statement, 3) financial or other need.
Who Is Eligible To Apply
All writers are welcome, but early- to mid-career writers are especially encouraged to apply. To honor Peter’s too-brief career in creative writing, preference will be given to writers who have not necessarily been widely published, but who demonstrate exceptional technique, voice, and perspective.
