Highlights Chautauqua Writers Workshop

Have you always wanted to go to the Writer’s Workshop that Highlights runs in Chautauqua, NY, but have hesitated to pursue your dream due to finances. The Highlights Foundation offers scholarships and now is the time to apply for consideration.

A lot of children’s writers dream of the Highlights Foundation Writers Workshop at Chautauqua. “Next year,” they promise themselves. “Next year I’m going to Chautauqua!” Then reality sets in. The drive and talent to support the dream are there, but the finances . . . maybe not.

Stop dreaming and start planning! Here is the scholarship newsletter from Highlights. Scholarships will be considered in two groups. Early applications will be accepted through December 15, 2010. (Final scholarship deadline is February 11, 2011.)

So take a look.  What’s the worse that can happen?  They don’t give you any money.  But then you aren’t any worse off than you were before.  I say go for it.  I applied when I first started writing children’s books and received a partial scholarship.  It was and still is a very wonderful week.

Talk tomorrow,



  1. I attended this FABULOUS workshop several times instead of taking a vacation those years and LOVED it. Highly recommended! It’s well worth the price. These experiences were some of the best in my life, professionally and personally. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about it. Lynne Marie
