Ryser Scholarship open to Writers Guild Members
The Writers Guild at Bloomington is offering the Ryser Scholarship to Writers Guild members to attend
a writing workshop or conference in 2022. The scholarship will cover costs up to $350.
A couple of examples are:
The IU Writers Conference in Bloomington, or A Gathering of Writers at Indiana Writers Center, Indianapolis.
You are welcome to attend a virtual or in-person workshop or event.
The Ryser Scholarship is named for Joan Ryser, an English teacher who taught at Bloomington High School South for many years. Before she passed away, she instructed her children to direct memorial contributions to a local program to encourage writers. The Writers Guild was honored to be the recipient, and created an ongoing scholarship to help writers attend a workshop or conference. Each year we offer this award to one of the following: an English teacher, a junior or high school student, a member of the Writers Guild at Bloomington.
