2020 Storymakers Conference Diversity Scholarship Application
The deadline for scholarship applications will be December 15, 2019.
Scholarship recipients will be contacted by January 6, 2020.

Storymakers Conference is committed to creating a supportive community for writers from all backgrounds. We also would like to provide progressive, affordable experience in learning the art and business of writing. Financial assistance in the Storymakers Conference is vitally important in helping writers achieve their writing and publishing dreams, that’s why we offer Diversity Scholarships to those with marginalized voices that have been historically underrepresented in publishing. This includes (but is not limited to): Native peoples and people of color; people living and/or born/raised in underrepresented cultures and countries; people with disabilities, people on marginalized ends of cultural and/or religious spectrum; people identifying within the LGBTQIA+ community.

While this is a needs-based scholarship, we do not ask you to submit detailed financial information. Rather, please self-certify that without financial assistance it would be difficult, if not impossible, to attend. To demonstrate seriousness about a writing career, please also indicate why you (or the person you are nominating) wish to attend the conference and what path you hope to take with your writing. This should be brief, but enough to demonstrate that you (or the person you are nominating) will put the skills and tools you acquire at the conference to a good purpose. The Scholarship Committee reserves the right to disqualify any application they judge as lacking merit.
