Reedsy — a marketplace that helps authors work with the web’s best publishing professionals- is pleased to announce the inaugural Reedsy National Creative Writing Scholarship, a biannual award for writers and novelists in further education. As the world’s leading marketplace of book publishing talent, Reedsy is passionate about nurturing the next generation of fiction authors. We have designed this scholarship to award a student whose writing displays a clear and unique voice with the potential to thrive in the competitive literary landscape.
Awarded twice a year, successful candidates will receive $1,000 towards educational expenses and be eligible for further sponsorship from Reedsy while they develop as a writer. All you need to do is submit the first chapter (1,500 to 7,500 words) of an original novel you are currently writing, or have written but not yet published. Deadline for spring consideration is February 21, 2018.
