FULL AND PARTIAL SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE for BIPOC writers and individuals in financial need: Kelli and Susan want this workshop to be accessible to all who want to participate. We know these are difficult times and for some there is the added stress of losing your job or reduced income. If the price is a real hardship, please email Susan at PoetsontheCoast(at) gmail.com and tell us in
2-3 sentences what your circumstances are, send three recent poems and tell us what, if anything, you could pay.
Alternatively, if you’d like to sponsor a person in need, please contact Poets on the Coast(at) gmail.com
