The Jodi Thomas Two-Step Grant!

I'm excited to announce more details regarding the Jodi Thomas Two-Step Grant!

Jodi Thomas is a multi-award winning, bestselling author, and all around great lady.  She approached the chapter a few months ago about presenting at our conference, and said that rather than accepting a speaking fee for her time, she would prefer the chapter offer a grant program so that writers who otherwise would not be able to afford the conference can attend.

The requirements to apply for this grant are simple: this must be the first time you have attended the NTRWA Texas Two-Step conference.

That's it.

Three winners will receive a waived conference registration fee.  In addition, one of those lucky winners will receive a free night at the hotel (room fee and taxes only--any room service, pay-per-view, or mini-bar expenses will not be comped).

To enter, simply fill out this form: Grant application

Winners will be chosen using a random number generator, and winners will be contacted on March 1, giving them plenty of time to make travel arrangements for the conference.
