Participant Contests




Donations from Friends of Mendocino Coast Writers Conference provide MCWC Scholarships for writers of all ages. Awards are made on the basis of literary merit and need. If you received a scholarship during the past three years, you are not eligible to apply. The stipend provides partial support of $250 but full fees could be paid in exceptional circumstances.

This scholarship is for conference fees only; travel and lodging expenses are not covered.
