We want to keep you informed of the wonderful developments that have taken place over the eleven years that Bear River Writers’ Conference has been in existence. Our scholarship programs have produced over 100 scholarships for deserving writers in the last few years. With the support of the Meijer Foundation and with the generous gifts from individuals and writers groups as well as from the University of Michigan and private anonymous donors, the Bear River Scholarship Program has grown in size as well as substance.
We are concerned that the current economy has caused a number of our scholarship programs to decrease or to be discontinued. For this reason, we are asking our Bear River community to consider supporting deserving writers who may not be able to attend the conference without assistance.
We would so appreciate your contribution to the writers of Michigan and surrounding areas.
Keith Taylor, Director
