Each year, HippoCamp: A Conference for Creative Nonfiction Writers offers writing conference scholarships (as many as we can afford!) to writers who require a little financial assistance to make the journey.
Thanks to our generous Friends (who donate monthly to support our work), and some wonderful individual sponsors, we were able to provide full and partial scholarship funds to 13 writers from all over the country this year!
