Journeys Schools’ Sara McWhirter Garners Scholarship

In Sara McWhirter’s request for a scholarship, she easily convinced us that she was a good fit. Last year she fully participated in every workshop she attended which always makes us at the conference happy.

“The Writers Conference, when I attended last year, was the most distilled and powerful poetry education I’ve ever had. I had never had an experience like that, and I value it very highly. In addition, the advice from editors and publishers was essential, and I plan on using what I learned last year throughout my burgeoning writing career. However, I’m still hungry to learn more. I want to continue my creative momentum, and another year of the JH Writers Conference would allow me to do that. I don’t exactly have the resources to pay for full access to the Conference, and a scholarship would give me that access without the strain. I truly would appreciate a scholarship- I cherished every moment of the Conference last year, and I hope to be able to do the same this year. Thank you!”

We look forward to writing again with Sara, who is finishing up her sophomore year at Journeys School. She also will be competing in the second annual Word Duels on May 1 at The Center.
