scholarships for students in the area to study

The LGRWC is a four day event where
working writers from all over the place can
apply to be admitted into one of three writing
workshops, all with guest writers to lead the
sessions. Each workshop accepts 12 participants.
If you’re looking to hone your writing skills or
get a second opinion, this is the event for you!
The fiction workshop will be led by
Crystal Wilkinson, the nonfiction by Alison
Hawthorne Deming and the poetry by Aimee
Nezhukumatathil. All three are published authors
coming to meet with working writers to help
them improve their skills.
The cost of the event is $550 with on campus
housing and $475 without on campus housing.
This cost covers all workshops, meals, receptions
and a private room in Stanback Hall (for those
staying on campus).
To help out with the cost, there are two
scholarships awarded per workshop, so six in
total. One is a merit based scholarship and the
other is a need based scholarship. These will
cover the entire cost for the recipients. Brevard
College students have the chance to receive a
BC scholarship as well to cover the entire cost.
Submissions are open from October 1 until
December 31. All those that apply will be
notified by February 1 whether they have been
accepted or not. Anyone can submit to two
