I have been invited to nominate two students for scholarships to the Juniper Summer Writing Institute (http://www.umass.edu/juniperinstitute/institute.html) at UMass in June. The applicatin deadline is April 2.
If you think you might be interested, check out the web site and let me know by the end of the Janaury residency. I think Ron Samul may have attended a few years ago, so you can ask him about his experience.
If any of you need to replace a residency, this might be a good opportunity. I do not know the value of the scholarships.
