Then you qualify for The Writer Mama Scholarship.
Application deadline for the next Available Scholarship for the August 12th Writing & Publishing The Short Stuff Class begins on Sunday!
I am accepting applications from Sunday, July 19th through Saturday, July 25th Tuesday, July 27th for the August 12th Writing & Publishing the Short Stuff Class Scholarship.
One full scholarship will be granted each quarter. Please read the guidelines below completely and double-check your application. The recipient will be announced on Wednesday, July 29th in this blog.
Please feel free to spread the word about the scholarship, even if you do not intend to apply. If you have already paid for the class, you do not qualify for the scholarship.
Only one scholarship is available per WPSS class. This is a full scholarship. The recipient commits to participating fully in the class and delivering all six assignments on time. Please do not apply if you cannot make the commitment to participate in the class.
The scholarship is not transferable if you fail to complete the class. The scholarship is also not transferable in the case of illness, family emergencies, a move, etc.
Please note that this is a scholarship, not a giveaway. The scholarship is only for moms, not soon-to-be moms. Please do not apply if you are pregnant (just trust me on this). The scholarship is offered by Christina Katz.
No special additional professional time or coaching is offered with the scholarship. It’s up to the scholarship recipient to make the most of the class, like everyone else in the group.
What is written in your application is private and your personal information will never be shared or sold. The only way to qualify is to apply each time. No one else will view your application but Christina Katz.
To learn about future scholarship opportunities), please subscribe to The Writer Mama e-zine in the upper right-hand corner of this blog (click on the envelope glyph).
Applications will be reviewed in the order they are received. Send your application to: “writer mama 2 @ earthlink dot net” — this the only email address for the scholarship. If you do not receive the scholarship, save your application for future scholarships, and re-apply. But double check the application, it may have changed or been updated. And always add in your most current publication credits, since I really look at those.
The application questions are below. Copy and paste the questions into an email (though, to take the class you must be able to create and read Microsoft Word documents, no exceptions). Please answer each question concisely and completely. Please write your application in Word and then transfer the text into an email so that you will keep a copy.
The scholarship recipient will be chosen based on the following criteria: Demonstrated effort, Need, and Enthusiasm as determined by Christina Katz. The most important consideration is demonstrated past effort, so please don’t skimp on details of your past writing efforts.
Applications accepted from U.S. residents only at this time. Thanks for understanding.
Here’s the application (copy and paste it into a Word doc, answer each question fully, do not exceed one page, then copy and paste your final application into an email when you are ready to submit it):

So if you work at home, earn money, receive money, or your spouse or partner earns enough money for you to afford the class, please expect to pay full price. My classes are kept affordable so that more people can take them!
