McCloy-MWA Scholarship Announcement


Every year, MWA awards two promising mystery writers up to $500 each for tuition or registration fees for classes, courses, workshops, or other programs to improve your writing — whether your mystery is in the form of a short story, novel, script or nonfiction. Submissions for the annual Helen McCloy-MWA Scholarship must be postmarked no later than the last day in February. Live classes (not online) must take place in the U.S. and may begin any time after April 30. There are no membership requirements or application fees. Complete rules and the official application form are posted on the national MWA website: (click McCloy scholarship in the sidebar).
