New York Writers Workshop (NYWW) is running an immersive writing retreat in Athens, Greece from May 22nd to May 29th, 2021 and offering three scholarships (one full, two partial*) for writers under 30 to work with esteemed international faculty, including Kim Addonizio, Moira Egan, Damiano Abeni, Vasilis Manousakis, Ravi Shankar, Tim Tomlinson, Lena Kallergi and more.
Please send a sample of prose (5 pages) or poetry (5 poems), and in your cover letter, tell us where you are in your writing career (workshop experience, degrees, publications, mentors, aspirations), what you would gain from a trip to Athens, Greece to work on your writing, and what financial needs you might have at the moment.
Winners will be announced mid-January, 2022. Scholarship winners may be asked to help out with small logistical matters while at the conference, but 95% of their time will be free to attend workshops, panels, readings, and to write and explore. For conference details see NYWW in Athens. (*Full scholarship includes everything but airfare, hotel transfer, and some meals; partial scholarships are 50% off the conference rate.)
