2022 Scholarship Winners

Winners of the 2022 Writing Excuses Workshop and Retreat scholarships have been selected!

The application process was conducted in a compressed timeline this year, in which applicants prepared and sent us their submissions digitally, including writing samples, letters of recommendation, and a personal essay. Applications were carefully reviewed in a two-phase assessment with care taken to ensure reviews are conducted without potential conflicts of interest.

All of the applications were great and we appreciate the time and effort that went into them! After careful consideration, we have our scholarship winners:
