Eager to attend the conference but could use some financial support to pull it off? Here’s a scholarship opportunity offered throughthe Association of Writers and Writing Programs (AWP).  The $500 award, offered to a poet and a fiction writer each, can be applied to any member conference of the Writing Conference and Centers, a division of AWP.  We are a member!  Applications are due by March 30th; follow the link to get the all the details. We encourage you to apply – the $500 award would be a half-scholarship to our conference.
        As an interesting connection, the judge for this year’s competition, Laura Kasischke, was on our  Fiction Faculty in 2007. She’s well known for both her fiction and poetry, having published 7 novels and 7 books of poetry. A rather balanced output, wouldn’t you say?
