Do You Offer Scholarships?

Yes, we do. We can provide scholarships for those in need, as well as for Author Salon members, Algonkian alumni, and members of select writer associations. Though we believe our novel writing program to be more valuable given our quality, depth of instruction, and professional network with the publishing business (via our own faculty, Algonkian and Author Salon) when compared to more expensive writer conferences (median $1200 to $1600 not including transportation), or any ten college extension courses on novel writing (average $5200+), or even an MFA program ($30,000 - $80,000) that fails to address advanced craft as well as market realities, we will strongly consider providing writers with scholarships. You may apply for a scholarship to the program by visiting our Contact Page.

Email us with the subject line REQUESTING SCHOLARSHIP.
