Apply August 6 – September 1 for the Sentient Squid Scholarship to attend one of the Writing the Other Master Classes held online in August and September 2016.

UPDATE: We moved back the deadline on the scholarships. Please note that the deadline for the first class is August 21st.

In recognition of the fact that many of the writers who would benefit from and want to take a Master Class cannot afford it financially, there is one spot in each seminar available to writers we select based on:

  • A brief (300 or fewer words) statement on why the student needs financial assistance to attend the seminars, and
  • A brief (500 or fewer words) explanation of their current writing project(s) that relate to the seminar they’re applying to attend.

Please fill out the form below by 11:59PM Pacific September 1, 2016.

Applicants will be informed of their standing by August 16th.

How is this possible?

The Sentient Squid Scholarship spots are made possible by anonymous donors. We are overwhelmed and extremely grateful for the generosity of these donors and their commitment to opening up this learning opportunity to more writers.

Who should apply for this?

Any writer who wants to learn this skill but cannot afford to pay for the class.

Apply even if your definition of “can’t afford” is that you can’t spare your funds for a class, not just if you don’t have the money at all. Our goal with this scholarship–and the stated desires of some donors–is to make Writing the Other accessible to a wider number of writers, not just more accessible to a certain type.

It costs nothing to apply. Don’t self-eliminate!
