Grant Available, Pen Women Tea & WriteOnCon + MS Contest

Thank you for the anniversary wishes last week!

I've mentioned before that I'm a member of the Pikes Peak Branch of the National League of American Pen Women. Well, I have a bit of news to pass on:

The PPB of the NLAPW is offering a grant in the form of the Denise Pomeraning Memorial Enrichment Grant. It is open to Southern Colorado women, aged eighteen and above, who are pursuing professional growth in writing, arts, photography or musical composition. You may mail or email your application, but it must be received by no later than September 30, 2011, with recipients announced by October 31, 2011. You can find more information on theOutreach page of the PPB NLAPW website:

Also, there is a tea on August 20th at the Blue Sage Cafe on Centennial, from 2-4pm, here in Colorado Springs. This tea is held for the purpose of introducing interested parties to the women of the branch. You can find this on the Calendar page of the PPB NLAPW website.

I realize these are very specific to Southern Colorado women, so wanted to post about the WriteOnCon occurring online this week. It's a writer's conference held completely online, entirely free! Go here ( for more information or to register.

There is a manuscript contest being run by and that goes hand in hand with the WriteOnCon. Click here for more information on that.

Will I run into any of you at the WriteOnCon? Ever attended an online conference? Let us know your thoughts!

May you find your Muse.


  1. I signed up for it, but I need to read more about it. I'd like to do it though.

  2. Sounds like a neat program. Good to know that opportunities like that exist out there:)

  3. Rachel, I hope you're liking it if you participated.

    Mark, there are some really great opportunities out there. The problem is always how to find them. The answer (for me) is usually purely by chance!
