Time Is Running Out for CO Unpublished Authors and Writers

The clock is ticking for five lucky aspiring authors in CO. The Authors’ Hall of Fame will give Five $2,000 Scholarships to non-published writers. Is that you? Does one have your name on it? Would you like to be one of them?

Aspiring Authors … It’s the BIG day coming … and five amazing authors-to-be will be awarded scholarships with a combination cash and intensive 18-month mentorship program. Who will they be? Find out and meet the first recipients of the Colorado Authors’ Hall of Fame Scholarships on FRIDAY, September 16 at a festive luncheon honoring them at the Doubletree Hilton in Greenwood Village..

Five … yes, that is FIVE authors-to-be will receive $2,000 in cash PLUS participation in an extensive 12-month mentorship to support their success as an author this fall. Each of the amazing and talented recipients recognize that publishing and authorship is a business and authors must have a commitment to their craft and marketing side to add to their success. Writing and publishing a book is like climbing one of our Rocky Mountain ‘fourteeners’. It requires years of preparation, unbelievable stamina and courage. Facing that blank page is like starting an ascent. When you reach the top by completing the book, authors can suddenly see farther than ever before. Could that be you?

NOW … what we need is unpublished authors to give them to. Could that be you? If yes, you need to apply now.

  • Be a resident of Colorado.
  • Complete a short essay.
  • Share a sample of your writing of at least 20 pages.
  • Submit your application.

If what you read above is a “That’s a ME,” register now. All applications must be in by March 31, 2024.

Information is on the Scholarship Tab on the Hall’s site: www.ColoradoAuthorsHallofFame.org
