We are pleased to offer two scholarships to this year’s conference.

Scholarships include full admission to the conference Friday and Saturday and include dinner Friday, lunch Saturday, and snacks. Recipients are responsible for all other meals, travel, and lodging.

Applications are due by August 1, 2017. Winners will be notified by September 1, 2017. Applicants who do not win the scholarship will still be eligible for the early bird pricing ($135, meals extra).

Applications will be evaluated based on quality of writing and content. Winners may be featured on the Breathe blog and other Breathe materials.

Application Process:

Being connected to our Creator God, feeling connected to our subject matter, and having meaningful connections with others are all crucial for our well-being and success as artists.

“How has being and feeling connected (or disconnected) impacted your writing life? How might attending Breathe help you connect to create?”
