Attending a writing conference is one of the most enjoyable experiences an author can have. Writing can be a solitary profession, and the opportunity to mingle with other writers in a laid-back environment is an ideal way to recharge and refresh. Writing conferences are a great way to build friendships, and to learn how to take your work to the next level to boot!
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.
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.
