PSWG Scholarship Program for Student Writers
In 2021 the Palm Springs Writers Guild launches its new Scholarship Program for Student Writers. This new program aims to offer multiple $5,000 scholarships to high school seniors graduating in spring '22 who have demonstrated a keen interest in and talent for writing. Though the formats and vehicles for distributing the written word have changed dramatically in recent years, the skills required to effectively communicate stories and information are just as important as ever. The Guild works in many ways to ensure all our members are able to continually hone their craft and keep up with the ever-changing world of writing. The PSWG Scholarship Program for Student Writers seeks to ensure the newest generation of talented scribes have the skills, resources, and educational access necessary to keep us all well-informed and entertained in the years to come.
On April 8, 2021 the PSWG will host a virtual fundraiser in support of this exciting new Program. It will be a fun and exciting evening in support of a great cause. Please mark your calendars to join us!
We will provide more details, application requirements and materials, and deadlines in the months ahead. Please keep a close eye on this space!
We would of course be grateful for any and all donations, whether via our fundraiser or simply right here through our website. If you would like to contribute now, please simply click the button below to make a donation. Thank you!
OUR COMMUNITY COMMITMENT
The Palm Springs Writers Guild elevates and celebrates aspiring and seasoned writers throughout the Coachella Valley. The Guild supports and encourages those who write fiction and non-fiction, memoirs, screenplays, and poetry via our Insider Workshops and Writing Labs, prestigious speakers, critique groups, a popular Book Fair, and more. The Guild seeks to expand and enhance its community of writers with a variety of judged writing contests and a dynamic scholarship program for area students.
Volunteers are always needed and welcome to help us launch and run this program. Please contact Cynthia West, Director of Education if you would like to get involved.
