And the recipients of the January 13th Writer Mama Scholarship are…

Writer Mama ScholarshipThat’s right. The applications were so promising this time around that I decided to select two WPSS scholarship recipients. And they are:

Robin Paulsen

&

Carol J. Alexander

Hearty congratulations, Robin & Carol! Happy holidays!

I look forward to working with you in class in a few of weeks. I will send you a class confirmation shortly.

Please note: This is not a giveaway. This is a scholarship. I don’t just hand these things out like…like…like I hand out books! 🙂

And, for the record, choosing scholarship recipients is  extremely challenging because I receive so many applications from worthy writers. Truly, this was tough choice. I received more promising candidates than ever this time around.

I encourage you all to apply again for the next WPSS class in March. Anything you can do to beef up the your traditional publication credits between now and the next application round is a good strategy.

Thanks to EVERYONE who applied!

The next scholarship offered will be for the March 2010 Writing & Publishing the Short Stuff class. Watch my new blog, christinakatz.com, for all the details! I’m very happy to be able to grant one scholarship each time I offer this class (giving two this time was an exception).

And congratulations again, Robin and Carol! Please help me congratulate our recipients in the comments.

Writer Mama ScholarshipVALUE: $250.00!

Are you a mom, who would love to take the Writing and Publishing the Short Stuff Class that starts January 13th, but you would not otherwise be able to afford it?

Then you qualify for The Writer Mama Scholarship. )

Application deadline for the next available scholarship for the January 13th Writing & Publishing The Short Stuff Class begins today!

I am accepting applications from today through Sunday, December 13th for the Writing & Publishing the Short Stuff Class Scholarship.

One full scholarship is granted each quarter. Please read the guidelines below completely and double-check your application. The recipient will be announced on Monday, December 14th 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. If you have already taken the class, you also do not qualify. Otherwise 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, which involves reading the weekly workbook, completing your assignments, and reviewing your classmates work.

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 the class instructor, Christina Katz.

No additional time or special 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 class.

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.

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 don’t receive the scholarship, save your application for future scholarships, and re-apply. Always add in your most current publication credits, since I look at those.

The application questions are below. Copy and paste the questions into a Microsoft Word document (to take the class you must be able to create and read Microsoft Word documents, no exceptions). Please answer each question concisely and completely.

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:

[Begin application form]

Address

Email

Phone

Have you read the book, Writer Mama?

How long have you been reading the WM blog?

What version of Microsoft Word software are you currently using?

Write a short paragraph in response to the following questions:

  1. Please write one paragraph about why you want to take the class, Writing and Publishing the Short Stuff.
  2. Please list, in paragraph form by publication name and date only, any publication credits you’ve accumulated thus far . Briefly list any other experience you think is relevant, also in paragraph form.
  3. Please briefly state why you are unable to afford the tuition for the class at this time (see note below).

[End application form]

Please Note: The Writer Mama Scholarship is only for moms who legitimately cannot afford class tuition for whatever reason. 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 moms can take them!

To register for the class as a non-scholarship candidate, please visit the “Register” page at http://christinakatz.com. After the January 13th classes, the next round of classes start on March 3rd. Add http://christinakatz.com to your blog reader so you won’t miss an announcement.

I’m pleased to be able to offer one free class per semester to one deserving mama. Good luck! )

Sweet September! The Next Writer Mama E-zine Begins Here

Let’s hear it for fall-hip, hip, hooray!

My daughter starts second grade tomorrow, so I’ll be breathing a big sigh of relief and getting six-plus consecutive hours of work time back in my day Monday through Friday.

And in honor of back-to-school, guess what time it is?

It’s time for the Writer Mama Back-to-School Giveaway! Have you been commenting along for your chance to win great books each day? If not, please jump right in! We’re having a great time so far. (Don’t forget to read the rules, if you are new.)

I also want to invite you to join me in supporting two wonderful writers who have debut books coming out! Please see the announcement below about the September 15th Amazon Spike for Kristin Bair-O’Keeffe and Cindy Hudson, who have both served as managing editors of Writers on the Rise. I am thrilled for both of them.

In fact, Mother-Daughter Book Club Expert Cindy Hudson and Caroline Grant from Literary Mama will be my guests at the next #platformchat this Friday, September 11th at 11:00 a.m. If you haven’t had a chance to attend #platformchat on Twitter with me, I hope you’ll make it to this special event on the subject of balancing the mama-writing life with everything else. (I recommend you sign up for Tweetchat to attend, it’s quick and easy-just use your Twitter ID.)

I’m so glad I rested up a bit this summer because my fall schedule is hopping. I’m currently teaching two classes (go students!), in two weeks I’ll be traveling to New York City for the Writer’s Digest Business of Publishing Conference, then I’m kicking off the Northwest Author Series, launching a three-hour workshop on platform development in Eugene, Oregon, teaching (again) at Portland’s Wordstock, Festival of the Book, and offering a Writer’s Digest Webinar on how to use specializing or generalizing to increase your writing profits.

The next round of classes begins October 7th with classes being offered by myself, Abigail Green, Jen Applin, and Sage Cohen. Don’t forget that this week is your chance to apply for the Writer Mama Scholarship for my October 7th class.

And there’s more! I’ve got some big announcements coming up. Look for the all new Article Accountability Dream Team for Writer Mamas who have taken Writing & Publishing the Short Stuff to launch in January. Meanwhile, another group of my advanced students-Destination: Book Deal-will kick off on October 1st. See the announcement below for more details.

So am I happy that my daughter got the teacher she really, really wanted for school this year? Am I happy that she’ll receive an outstanding education while I cheerfully toil away in my home office? Am I happy that the weather has already shifted from dog days to cool, crisp air?

You bet I am! I might even dance a little jig when I get back from walking Samantha to her first day of school tomorrow.

I love school. I love that my daughter loves school. I love everything about learning and teaching and making steady progress towards goals. This is why I became a teacher.

And this is what I remembered on my summer break. What did you learn on yours?
