Writing conference offers scholarships [US]

Posted on Jan 25, 2019 in Specialized Topics

All writers, from inexperienced to very established, are encouraged to apply for scholarships and fellowships to attend a writing conference.

The annual Wesleyan Writers Conference will take place from June 12 to 16 on the Wesleyan University campus in Middletown, Connecticut. The event will cover a wide range of topics, including journalism, nonfiction, editing and translation, and writing about science and medicine.

There are several scholarships available especially for journalists who wish to attend the conference. Teaching fellowships are also available for writers who have completed book-length manuscripts.

The scholarships cover at least part, if not all, of the tuition for the conference. Applicants must submit a registration form, a representative sample of their work in nonfiction, a letter of application expressing their interests and a resume.

Applicants may choose to also submit a US$100 deposit that will secure their place at the conference, although this is optional if they are only applying for the scholarship. 

The deadline to apply for the scholarships is March 15.
