|Organization||Tin House Winter Workshops Scholarship|
|Type||Grants and Fellowships|
|Due Date||October 16, 2019|
|Last Reported||September 1, 2019|
|Description||These weekend workshops combine the rugged beauty of the Oregon Coast with a weekend immersed in all things literary. The program consists of morning workshops with no more than six writers per class, one-on-one meetings with faculty, afternoon craft discussions, and/or generative exercises. Evenings are reserved for conversations by the fire and coastal revelry. We will be awarding one full scholarship for each of our 2020 sessions. A full scholarship includes both tuition and housing + a $75 food stipend. All scholarship recipients will need to provide for their transportation to and from Portland. For scholarship applicants, we also ask for a 500-1500 word essay describing what you are currently working on, how you hope an experience at our conference will benefit your writing and any other personal information you feel like we should know about you. Think of this as nothing more than an introduction to who you are and where you’re coming from as a writer. We also offer a Single Parent Scholarship. This award, funded by a private donor, is intended to help support single parents who have at least one child under the age of 18 living at home, and who might otherwise find it challenging to devote time, space, and resources to writing. In addition to covering the full cost of tuition and room/board, the recipient of this award will also receive a $500 stipend for childcare. Please submit a 500-1500 word essay describing how being a single parent influences and challenges your writing, how you hope an experience at our conference will benefit your work, and any other personal information you feel like we should know about you. For short fiction/novel/nonfiction, we ask for one unpublished writing sample of 5,000 words or less. For poetry, we ask for four unpublished poems, totaling no more than ten pages. Applications open on Sept. 9th!|
