Youth Scholarship Program

In the interest of involving more young writers in the industry of our craft, we invite you to sponsor a college student as they attend our conference.

For $500 you can send one student to the conference for all three days. You will be mentioned in our program, on our blog, and in our social media. And you get to contribute to the education of an up-and-coming writer! We think that is the best reward imaginable.
