img_5425

I am moved and honored to offer several need-based, partial scholarships to the Fall 2019 Online Writing the Mother Wound Class. I have no idea how I am going to fund these, but I know this is right and good so I’m doing it! Check out the scholarships below.

If you’re interested in funding a scholarship, please send me a message to writingourlivesworkshop@gmail.com. Thank you!

Scholarship for an Unmothered Person

People define “unmothered” in different ways, but for me it includes someone whose mother isn’t consistently in their lives and hasn’t been in some time; they feel unanchored in the world without that foundation; someone who has had to mother themselves because their mom isn’t emotionally able or available to mother.

Scholarship amount: $300 (leaving the balance for the workshop at $300)

How to applySend a letter detailing the following:

  • Why do you consider yourself unmothered?
  • How are you qualified for the scholarship?
  • Explain your financial need—i.e. unemployed, underemployed, etc.
  • Why you think you need this class, what you expect to gain from it, and why you think you are deserving of the scholarship beyond your financial need.

Send the letter with “Writing the Mother Wound Scholarship” in the subject line to: writingourlivesworkshop@gmail.com. (Note: Priority goes to students who have not received a Writing Our Lives scholarship in the past.)
