The Frederick Buechner Center has graciously sponsored a set of scholarships for writers of color to attend a future Publishing in Color conference free of charge! Here is what you need to do to apply for one of these scholarships:

  1. Complete the application below. You will receive a copy of Buechner’s book Secrets in the Dark in the mail.
  2. Write a blog-length article (roughly 700 – 1,200 words) with your reflections on some aspect of the book and email it to brian (at) Your submission grants Publishing in Color, Writing for Your Life, and the Frederick Buechner Center your permission to use your reflection however they would like, including for online publication (but none of these organizations are obligated to do so).
  3. Your reflection and other application information will be used to select scholarship recipients
  4. You will be notified by email if your application for a scholarship has been approved

Be sure to apply well in advance of a conference you wish to attend, so that you will have adequate time to receive the book and write your reflection, and we will have time to assess it for a scholarship. Please note that the scholarship covers the cost of the conference, but not any other expenses such as travel and lodging.
