[old] Scholarship Application for Plan Your Novel Oct. 2015 class
This year I am pleased to announce scholarships for our Plan Your Novel, 30-Day Writing Challenge, Oct. 2015 course.
Why you might want to apply?
If you’re experiencing a financial hardship, but really want the support, community, and teaching we offer, then apply.
Why I’m offering these scholarships
I know what it’s like to want to learn, to want to advance your career, but not have the funds. I also know the power of coming together in community and how that gathering accelerates the learning process and opportunities, of all things related to writing and career and to self-awareness.
Offering these scholarships is my way of paying it forward for all those who gave me scholarships along the way. When you apply for a scholarship, you’re joining in the “pay it forward” economy where we all help each other. We succeed as a community when everyone has access to the resources they need to get to where they want to go.
WHAT: We are offering 2 scholarships, 1 awarded in August and 1 awarded in September
Let’s break it down:
You can apply for the DIVE IN level ($159) or for the ALL IN level ($299). To apply, fill out the application below.
CRITERIA FOR APPLYING
We’re offering scholarships to people who might not be able to take this course otherwise due to low-income and who really want to be career novelists. A career novelist is someone who works part time or full time to write, publish, and market a body of work over time. We don’t get there overnight, but we do get there eventually. Persistence is key! This course is one way to start that journey.
To apply, here’s what you do:
1. In a clear and compelling way, tell us why you want this scholarship and what you have to offer through your stories.
2. Describe how you meet our scholarship criteria.
3. Include your website if you have one.
4. Talk about how you are going to help your fellow students.
5. Talk about how you are going to share about the course to help spread the word.
6. Tell us something fun and intriguing about yourself.
By when: The first scholarship application period is from now until Tuesday, August 23, 9pm Pacific. (Use this handy time zone converter to determine when this is for you.)
Winners will be announced Aug. 24th in my newsletter.
