Annual Writers’ Program Scholarship Supports New Voices

by Morgan Eagle November 6, 2014  

The Writers’ Program pledge has always been to serve its audience with distinction—from quality instruction by professional writers, to the convenience of online, to fostering a supportive atmosphere for writers to excel at every stage of the craft. Awards and scholarships are part of the story, as well.

Begun in 2011, The Writers’ Program Annual Scholarship awards up to 10 scholarships to promising writers from diverse backgrounds and cultures. The scholarship allows the winners to develop their narrative voice; awardees can enroll in three full-length Writers’ Program courses during a one-year period.*

The awards were announced in August.

Congratulations to the 2014-15 winners: Tanya Adams, Stefanie Michelle Almendarez, Ha Kiet Chau, Elizabeth Doyne, Carrie Lynn Hawthorne, Andrea Higham, Aimee McKay, Ivan J. Ngo, James Rogers III, and Kylie Swenson.
