UCLA Offers Writers Scholarship

Occasionally I reprint something that has been in my SharingwithWriters newsletter or that will soon appear there. I do it so that those who follow this blog won't miss out on some of what is there. Yep!  I also do it to encourage you to subscribe to the newsletter because it is long and packed full of little tidbits that don't appear here, too.  It's easy. I'll do it for you. Just send me an e-mail with SUBSCRIBE in the subject line to HoJoNews (at) AOL (dot) com. 

So, here is the info from the Opportunities section of that newsletter I want you to have--something I know many of you will want to try out for:

UCLA Offers Writing Credential Scholarship  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As many of you know, I took many classes at UCLA to learn the fine art of fiction after a life time's grounding in journalism and marketing. I have taught seminars there for nearly a decade. I believe in what they do. Now they offer a Writers’ Program Scholarship to those who “might not otherwise have an opportunity to develop his or her creative writing or screenwriting skills in a supportive classroom setting. Courses may be taken either onsite or online.” Applications are available at www.uclaextension.edu/writers or call 310 825-7483. The deadline is June 29, 2012.
