River Teeth Conference Scholarship Deadline Extended
March 3, 2015 § 2 Comments
We interrupt our normal programming to bring you this special breaking news announcement from our tall, good-looking, clean-cut friends at River Teeth:
We are extending the deadline to submit student scholarship applications for the River Teeth Nonfiction Conference, which is scheduled for May 29-31 on the Ashland University main campus. The new deadline is March 15, 2015
River Teeth is offering four scholarships to students currently enrolled in writing programs (graduate or undergraduate). All registration fees will be waived for the recipients of the scholarships. Other expenses (travel, room, board) are the responsibility of the scholarship recipient.
This year’s conference will feature Cheryl Strayed, author of the New York Times bestsellers, Wild and Tiny Beautiful Things; and Jerald Walker, author of Street Shadows: A Memoir of Race, Rebellion, and Redemption, recipient of the 2011 PEN New England Award and the L.L. Winship Award for Nonfiction. In addition to these featured guest speakers, the weekend conference will also include seminars, panels, book signings, manuscript consultations, and discussion with other established and emerging writers.

Thank you for posting such great news about opportunities around the web. 🙂
Alas~ I cannot attend. I’ll have to soothe my disappointment by hoping to hear others call out to me…”Wish You Were Here”
