Young Writer Scholarship Opportunity

An agent friend of mine has a great scholarship opportunity that I'd like to publicize. It's centered around the Society of Southwestern Author's conference in Tucson at the end of September, 2009, however you don't have to be a Tucson resident to apply or win, you just need to be able to get to Tucson and attend the conference.

Details below...

*****
I would like to introduce a scholarship opportunity to a high school-aged young writer in the Tucson area for the Wrangling with Writing Conference in September 2009. First, let me tell you a little about our program, so you have an idea about the organization that is offering this opportunity.

I am the president and founder of Capitol City Young Writers (CCYW), a national non-profit organization dedicated to the education and inspiration of young writers. CCYW’s goal is to educate members on the art and craft of writing and to provide opportunities for young writers to pursue their writing and literary dreams.

CCYW provides career exploration, writing workshops, scholarships, internships and leadership opportunities. Members discover the skills necessary to enter literary related careers such as editing, journalism or broadcast radio. From fiction and non-fiction, to poetry, screenwriting, songwriting and broadcast radio, students are supported through workshops bringing professionals and mentors together in local communities through online tutorials, annual conferences, a youth run literary journal, writing and audio competitions, and mentoring.

Because I believe in the power of community, I attempt to bring as many opportunities to local young writers in the form of scholarships to local writers’ conferences. The Society of Southwestern Authors has provided CCYW with two scholarships to their writers’ conference from September 25th-27th. The scholarship provides tuition only and not the cost of travel, lodging or meals. Scholarships are open to high school students only and a parent must accompany the member. Scholarships are only available to CCYW members. For more information about the conference, please visit http://ssa-az.org/.

For more information about the organization or membership, please visit the CCYW website, www.capitolcityyoungwriters.com.

Feel free to contact me with any questions.

Thank you,
Verna Dreisbach

Verna's the greatest and the CCYW is a wonderful organization, and I encourage anyone who fits the requirements to try for this scholarship.

Well rats, I'm too old, not a writer, and have a conflict with the weekend of the conference anyway. Hope some of those kids you know at the local HS will apply.

I have been a single mother of my 8 year old son for 4yrs now. My husband chose to leave me for another woman because she is wealthy and ready to have my husband at all cost. My husband forgot we both say "FOR BETTER OR FOR WORSE" to each other as man and wife. I love him too mucg but there was no way i could stop him and he was even filling for a divorce. Since then i have been taking care of our son single handedly until i saw much talk about this spell lady (priestessifaa@yahoo.com) who have helped marriages come together and relationship. I contacted her and she promised me 2days that i will have my husband back and at the actual days which this priestess told me, my husband came back begging with his knees. I have never seen my husband beg me for any reason, but that day he did.
To cut this long sweet story short, priestessifaa@yahoo.com has helped me reunite my family and am happy with my husband. This spell lady is great i am a sure witness.

i just want to share my experience and testimony here.. i was married for 4 years to my husband and all of a sudden, another woman came into the picture.. he started hailing me and he was abusive..but i still loved him with all my heart and wanted him at all cost…then he filed for divorce..my whole life was turning apart and i didn't know what to do..he moved out of the house and abandoned the kids.. so someone told me about trying spiritual means to get my husband back and introduced me to a spell caster…so i decided to try it reluctantly..although i didn't believe in all those things… then when he did the special prayers and spell, after 2days, my husband came back and was pleading..he had realized his mistakes..i just couldn't believe it.. anyways we are back together now and we are happy..in case anyone needs this man, his email address olotospellhome@yahoo.com his spells is for a better life. again his email is olotospellhome@yahoo.com
