Electric Literature to Offer Scholarships for Catapult Classes


Electric Literature, in partnership with the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, is offering full scholarships to workshops and classes that they’ll be co-presenting with Catapult. The scholarships are open to people of all ages and levels of experience, with the only requirement being that writers are New York City-based. The application process will open on November 15th.

Electric Literature’s Executive Direction Halimah Marcus said, “Most writers struggle to fit a regular writing practice into their busy lives, especially in New York City, where time comes at a high cost.” She added, “We’re thrilled to be able to offer financial support in addition to the incredible community and instruction these classes provide.”
