KWWC2018 Scholarships offer full tuition support to attend the 40th annual Kentucky Women Writers Conference on Sept. 13-16, 2018. Established 5 years ago by an anonymous donor, these scholarships were originally designed for women enrolled in graduate school. However, we are now expanding the criteria to anyone who has financial need. Applicants submitted a 5-page writing sample postmarked by July 1, 2018, along with a cover letter that describes their interest in our event and specifies the writing workshop they want.  Please mail to:
