The Saint Davids Christian Writers’ Conference is just a few months away, and I’m happy to announce that for those who have always wanted to go to a writers’ conference and couldn’t due to financial difficulties that there is still hope. Every year, Saint Davids offers full and particial scholarships to those who qualify to attend our annual conference.
My very first time attending a writers’ conference was here at SDCWC. I went on a scholarship, and I’ve managed to make my way back every year since.
Because if your serious about being a writer, you need to be around other writers. You need to learn the craft and to network. SDCWC is a place for christian writers who write. period. SDCWC supports writers. It’s a tough world, everyone is out to acheive something, we can’t always do it alone. Other conferences can be overwhelming. I big info dump that you later go home and sleep and absorb the information. As SDCWC, it’s a more relaxed and friendly enviroment. Evening gatherings provide a place not only to network, but form lasting friendships. Many of our SDCWC attendees stay in touch all year long and look forward to the fellowship and workshops we offer for the four day course of the conference.
And we’d like YOU to come experience what we have to offer. If your a writer, we welcome you.
If money is problem this year, fill out this form, don’t let finances stop you from attending this wonderful conference.
As written from the SDCWC website about one of our special scholarships:
The Berger-Minshull Scholarship
This year we are offer- ing a scholarship in honor of two of our emeritus board mem- bers, Eileen Berger and Evelyn Minshull. Full tuition will be provided to a conferee selected by the scholarship committee.
Eileen Berger and Evelyn Minshull both encouraged writers to polish and submit their work for publication. The candidate should tell about his or her current writing projects, work submit- ted for publication, and work accepted on the application found here. Please write “Berger and Minshull” at the top of your scholarship form.
If the candidate has submitted to contests and won prizes, this may also be included. The writing may be prose, poetry, or both. The candidate also should write about future plans for writing projects: articles, poet- ry, chapbooks, novels, nonfiction works, etc.
If the candidate is involved in a writers group or volunteers to teach in schools, he or she should also mention this involvement. The scholarship will not be determined solely on the basis of publication. However, the candidate should be actively engaged in writing and sending out work.
There are several other scholarships available, so please check them out at the SDCWC website.
Deadline for Scholarship applications is April 30, 2012.
Hope to see you there!!
