Find the ‘Write’ Scholarship for You!

Writing Scholarships Have you ever wondered where Stephenie Meyer got her inspiration for Twilight or how William Shakespeare created such monumental works of art with just a pen? For some, writing just seems to come naturally; their words dance across the page like a ballerina on a stage. And then there are those who sit for hours, stare at a blank page, feel tortured by every syllable, and wait for inspiration to strike.
