Salty Quill Scholarships

The Salty Quill Writers Retreat for Women is pleased to offer two scholarships for full-week sessions at the fifth annual Salty Quill Writers Retreat from September 28-October 5, 2019. Each scholarship includes accommodations, all meals, use of all the facilities, and boat transportation to and from McGee’s Island. Transportation to and from the departure point of Port Clyde, Maine, is fully the responsibility of the scholarship recipient. 


This year is the first year we are offering full-week scholarships: the Ellis Avery scholarship, and the Grub Street scholarship. Requirements are slightly different for each, but both scholarships are designed to support aspiring and/or struggling writers with as much promise as need. 


Deadline for application is May 20, 2019. Early applications are encouraged. Awardees will be announced by July 28, 2019. Application fee is $30. To apply, please email: retreat@thesaltyquill.com for information and application form or click on the box below to open the Scholarship Application. 

Scholarship recipients will stay in the Jewett Room (for photos of the room, see Rates & Accommodations). Please note: due to the remoteness of the location, if you have health concerns, severe allergies or other concerns that may impact your attendance, please contact us before applying to assure that we can accommodate you.
