This scholarship supports the mission of Diverse Verse:
We believe diversity in all its forms is important and worthy of respect. This resource was born out of a desire to highlight and celebrate diversity, especially with regard to poetry and verse novels for young people. We have begun with a focus on BIPOC diversity, and while we plan to always keep this at the forefront, we hope to also expand our embrace to include other aspects of diversity.
Scholarship funds will support writers who self-identify with a historically marginalized or underrepresented group and wish to attend a Poetry or Novels in Verse workshop. Get more information about the scholarship process and apply here.
