SVWC is pleased to offer a limited number of scholarships to aspiring writers. Six scholarships are provided to the Fulfillment Fund, a Los Angeles-based organization that mentors young people of exceptional promise. A number of local scholarships have also been provided by individuals in memory of loved ones and we are proud to celebrate their lives in this way.


The conference has proven to be a rich literary experience that we would like to share with our country’s finest emerging writers, those who are past the beginning, but have not yet reached the acknowledged high point of their writing careers. There is no application for this fellowship and each year the selection committee chooses from two to four young writers of exceptional promise from around the country.
