Calling Young Writers--Scholarships to AWW 2011!

Are you... or do you know... a Young Writer (those entering tenth, eleventh or twelfth grade in fall, 2011, or ages 15-18)?

Antioch Writers' Workshop offers a unique opportunity for young writers to attend the Full Week workshop July 9-15 with significant scholarship support! This opportunity is open only to Young Writers who live in the Ohio counties of Greene, Montgomery, Miami, Clark, Clinton, Fayette, Madison and Warren.

If you are a young writer who fits the above criteria, please seriously consider applying for this amazing opportunity to hone your writing craft.

If you know a young writer who fits the above criteria, please forward this information to him or her!

These Young Writers will:

•Attend Morning Classes with all Antioch Writers' Workshop participants.
•Attend the Young Writers' Afternoon Seminar, led by instructor Katrina Kittle.
•Have lunch between the classes and seminar together, with Ms. Kittle, and with one other Antioch Writers' Workshop faculty member, giving Young Writers a chance to chat with and ask questions of the other Antioch Writers' Workshop faculty members.

Please note: ALL Young Writers classes are held at Antioch University Midwest. All Young Writers participants must remain on the Antioch University Midwest campus from the beginning of Morning Classes, through lunch, and the end of the Afternoon Seminar.

Participation is limited to 12 students. Antioch Writers' Workshop is providing a Young Writers' Scholarship to each of the 12 selected students, which:

•Reduces the regular local registration/tuition fee from $675.00 to $300.00. (A reduction of $375.00)
•Covers instruction from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
•Includes lunches held at Antioch University Midwest, at no additional expense, thanks to support from the Dayton Daily News.

To be considered for this unique opportunity, students must apply by May 1, 2011, by submitting the following:

•A cover letter stating age, school attended, and reason for wishing to attend Antioch Writers' Workshop. Be sure to provide email, phone and home address contact information.
•A three page sample of writing of poetry, fiction, or non-fiction. (Poems must be complete and fit on all three pages; single or double-spaced. Fiction or non-fiction must be double-spaced, in Times New Roman 12 point, and may either be complete or an extract from a fuller work. Please number pages and include name and contact information in the top header of each page.)
•A one page letter of recommendation from a teacher of English, journalism or drama. (If home-schooled, please provide a letter of recommendation from a camp leader, preferably in the arts, or from another non-related adult, such as a music teacher or librarian.)
