Fine print: While TWC anticipates students will apply for classes each season, because classes are occasionally cancelled, each award will be valid for one calendar year from its issuance. Applicants do not need to be Writer Center members. Award amounts will reflect membership discount, as appropriate. Terms and conditions are subject to change.
