JOAN RYSER SCHOLARSHIP
TO ATTEND THE IU WRITERS CONFERENCE
Deadline to apply is APRIL 15
The Writers Guild at Bloomington is offering the Joan Ryser Scholarship to a member of the Writers Guild to attend the 2019 IU Writers Conference.
When Joan Ryser passed away, her family requested that– in lieu of flowers– people make donations to a local literary organization, and the Writers Guild was selected as the organization of choice. We have been able to add to that initial pool of money and are pleased to announce a scholarship for classes at the prestigious IU Writers Conference, held on the IU Campus, June 1-5.
The scholarship will fund registration for the classes portion of the conference, which usually costs $385. The scholarship is open to Members of the Writers Guild.
TO APPLY Please send a brief statement (250 words) about why it would be helpful to you to attend the conference this year, along with a short bio (100-200 words) to Joan Hawkins (firstname.lastname@example.org), Tony Brewer (email@example.com) DEADLINE APRIL 15.
We will announce the winner shortly after the April 20 business meeting.
HUGE THANKS TO SHAYNE LAUGHTER for all the work she’s done on this.
