SCWW Scott Lax Wildacres Scholarship

SCWW is pleased to announce the SCWW Scott Lax Wildacres Scholarship.

Wildacres Writers' Workshop is a week-long writing workshop held in Little Switzerland, NC. The views are spectacular and the food is amazing, but the writing experience is one you'll never forget.

Attendees register for one of five (5) workshops - classes for those workshops are held every day. Classes are small, 8-10 attendees, so there is strong, individual critique work for each person. Faculty members are not only generous with their knowledge during class, they are ready to sit on the patio after class or in the evenings and offer more tips and advice. And there is plenty of free time to enjoy the area . . . or just sit and WRITE!

This year's Wildacres Writers' Workshop is July 7-14.

The SCWW Scott Lax Wildacres Scholarship is provided through an anonymous donor and is named for a former WA faculty member. It is for the full tuition for the week.
