AWW Scholarships!

Scholarship Opportunities!

As we have for many years, we are offering the following scholarships:

► Betty Crumrine Scholarship--awarded to a single parent who is committed to writing and who could not otherwise attend the workshop. The Crumrine Scholarship was created by friends of Betty Crumrine, who lived and wrote in Yellow Springs and participated in the Antioch Writers' Workshop from 1986 until 1990.

► Judson Jerome Poetry Scholarship--The scholarship is named after Judson Jerome, a poet and nonfiction writer, writer of textbooks, professor, and poetry editor who founded the Antioch Writers' Workshop along with William Baker.
► Bill Baker Scholarship--for a writer who is nominated by someone who can testify to his or her qualifications both as writer and community member. The scholarship is named after Bill Baker, co-founder of the Antioch Writers' Workshop, writer of textbooks, journalist, and fiction writer.

Details for exactly what you need to submit... and how to submit... are on our Scholarship page.

This year, we're excited to announce that First Place winners of each scholarship will, as in the past, receive a scholarship covering the full registration and tuition. (Lodging, critiques, Saturday Seminar, and other expenses are not covered.

However, for the first time, we've added Second Place awards for each of the scholarships--covering 50% of the registration and tuition fees!

So... if your work fits these scholarships, please submit, or pass this information on to writers you know who would qualify to compete for these prestigious scholarships.

Deadline to apply is May 1, 2010.
