Tampa, FL (PRWEB) January 23, 2014
Writers looking for assistance in crafting their novels are in luck. Tampa-based company Free Expressions Seminars and Literary Services is again offering a student scholarship for 2014, which can be used for a week-long workshop intensive or comprehensive novel editing.
Those interested in applying for the scholarship, which is valued at more than $2,000, should demonstrate significant skill in the craft as well as a need for financial assistance. Both pre-published and published writers are invited to apply.
The awarded student will be eligible to attend the Breakout Novel Intensive with famed literary agent Donald Maass. The scholarship will cover tuition, workshop materials, lodging and meals, leaving only transportation and incidental expenses to the responsibility of the student.
"We know great writing and lots of money don't necessarily go hand-in-hand," Free Expressions founder Lorin Oberweger said. "We believe in putting the writer first, and we’re happy to offer this opportunity to authors who have the talent but don't necessarily have the means to attend our programs."
A partial scholarship valued at $500 is also up for grabs and can be used toward any seminar or editing service.
To learn more or apply for these scholarships, visit Free Expressions Seminars and Literary Services online at Free-Expressions.com/scholarship. Applications are due by Feb.14, and scholarship recipients will be notified by March 1.
In addition to filling out the form, every applicant is asked to submit two copies of a synopsis and the first 3,000 words of his or her novel. The submissions should only include the title of the work to keep judging completely anonymous. There is a $15 application fee.
