WC&C Scholarship Competition Application Deadline March 30, 2013

Taos Summer Writers' Conference is a member program!

WC& C Scholarship Competition

AWP offers two annual scholarships of $500 each to emerging writers who wish to attend a writers’ conference, center, retreat, festival, or residency. The scholarships are applied to fees for winners who attend one of the member programs in AWP’s Directory of Conferences & Centers. Winners and four finalists also receive a one-year individual membership in AWP.

The WC&C Scholarship Competition, which runs each year between December 1st and March 30th, is now accepting submissions! Winners apply their $500 cash prizes toward attendance at the WC&C member program of their choice.

Last year WC& C received 49 poetry entries and 77 fiction entries--so it's a relatively small competition, but a great way to spread the word about the wonderful writing centers, conferences, festivals, residencies, and retreats that make up WC&C.
