The Writer’s Center seeks promising writers in the Washington area earning less than $25,000 annually to apply. This scholarship program will provide complimentary writing workshops to the selected applicant for a period of one year, but not to exceed 8 workshops in that year (and not to include independent studies). We expect the recipient will use the year to make progress toward a completed manuscript of publishable work.
Previous winners include Marija Stajic (2013) Rose Fitzpatrick (2013), Nicole Idar (2012), Gimbiya Kettering (2011), Lee Kaplan (2010) and Susan Bucci Mockler (2009).
The Writer’s Center believes writers of all backgrounds and experiences should have an opportunity to devote time and energy toward the perfection of their craft.
The recipient will be able to attend writing workshops offered by The Writer’s Center free of charge. In addition, he or she will give a reading from his or her work after the close of the scholarship period and will be invited to join our community in ways most intereting to them.
To apply, candidates should submit:
a) a cover letter signed by the candidate that contains the statement: “I understand and confirm I meet all eligibility requirements of the Undiscovered Voices Scholarship.” The cover letter should include information on the impact this scholarship would have on the candidate.
b) contact information for two references who can speak to the candidate’s creative work and promise
c) a work sample in a single genre:
8 pages of poetry, no more than one poem per page
10 pages of fiction, double-spaced, no more than one work or excerpt
10 pages of nonfiction (essay, memoir, etc), double-spaced, no more than one work or excerpt
15 pages of a script or screenplay
These items should be sent in hard copy to
The Writer’s Center
