The Surrey International Writers' Conference community is diverse and inclusive, and offers a scholarship to reflect and support this.
For SiWC at Home 2020, we are offering a SECOND scholarship to a writer from a marginalized group thanks to a generous anonymous donation from an industry professional.
Think you might qualify? Check details below.
Thanks to a generous donation from an anonymous attendee, we are delighted to announce the SiWC Diversity Scholarship for SiWC.
It is our goal to be able to offer this scholarship again in future years, funded by attendee contributions. If you would like to contribute to the scholarship fund in addition to or instead of a registration form contribution, please let us know using the contact form on our website. Thank you!
