2011 Taos Summer Writers' Conference

Leo Love Merit Scholarships in Poetry and Fiction/Nonfiction

The two Leo Love Merit Scholarships—awarded in poetry and fiction/nonfiction—are available to any potential Conference participant. Each Merit Scholarship pays tuition for a weeklong workshop or partial tuition for a master class (a value of $650). Each Merit Scholarship recipient is responsible for her or his transportation and/or lodging costs.

Leo Love Merit Scholarship applicants must register for the Conference (including paying the deposit) at the time application is made for the scholarship. (By the time the scholarships have been awarded, we anticipate that many of the workshops will be closed. Thus, individuals applying for scholarships should be planning to attend the Conference, regardless of the outcome of the competition. These scholarships are meritorious awards, not financial assistance.)

Application Procedure for Leo Love Merit Scholarships

1. Submit 10 pages of prose or poetry, along with your registration form. Manuscripts and supporting materials will not be returned.

2. The deadline for application is Monday, May 2, 2011 (postmark). The decision will be posted on the Conference web site.

3. Send application materials to:

Taos Summer Writers' Conference
Attn: Leo Love Merit Scholarship

Sharon Oard Warner, Director

4. A committee composed of faculty and graduate students from the Creative Writing Program at the University of New Mexico will select the recipient whose name will be posted on the Conference web site on June 1, 2011.

We look forward to welcoming your students in Taos!

Sincerely,

Eva Lipton-Ormand
