The Writers’ Guild of Alberta and Nhung Tran-Davies are happy to announce the launch of the 7th Annual Kemosa Scholarship for First Nations, Métis and Inuit Mothers Who Write!
Because of the generosity of sponsors like Author Jeananne Kirwin, we will award three scholarships this year: 1st place $3000, 2nd place $2000, 3rd place $1000.
Our vision is to effect positive changes in our community through stories.
We are so happy to welcome back Tlicho Dene author Richard Van Camp, Nicole Harrish and Jacqueline Guest as this year’s judges!
