For those of you who have always wanted to learn to write your stories of motherhood, but can't afford the Momoir classes, here's your chance. The Momoir Project is offering its first-ever scholarship to two deserving moms.
The scholarship is open to any moms who want to join the fall online session of Writing for Moms. The classes run for 6 sessions, spread over 12 weeks and will introduce you to the basics of writing a good memoir. Through readings, in-class writing assignments and sharing your stories with other moms, you will connect with other moms, get inspired and learn a lot about yourself.
You must legitimately not be able to afford the classes, and be able to articulate why. You do not qualify if you have already paid for the classes, or if you've been a student before. Winners will be chosen based on need and the quality of the writing in your essay.
All you need to do is write a personal essay explaining why you want to write and why you can't afford the classes. Only those essays posted as a comment to this blog will be considered. Deadline is: August 30. Winners will be announced on September 5, by email. Only those who win will be contacted.
