“A generous grant from Amazon.com has made it possible to offer scholarships to writers who are serious about starting or continuing a nonfiction freelance writing career. They will benefit from attending the largest conference focused strictly on independent nonfiction writing, packed with the opportunities to network with hundreds of professional writers, editors, and agents – AND hear from impressive speakers including numerous editors and literary agents, scores of published award-winning authors and multi-credentialed writers.” Up to ten scholarships will be awarded for the New York City conference, which takes place April 30-May 2, 2015. Scholarships provide registration waivers and more. Eligibility: “Scholarships are available to nonfiction freelance writers including accomplished bloggers, book authors and those contributing original work to print and/or online periodicals.
