Writers’ Trust / Humber School for Writers Scholarships
The Humber School for Writers Correspondence Program is a seven-month, long-distance program which culminates in the creation of a book-length manuscript. For 18 years emerging writers have been paired with some of the best English language writers from around the world. More than 270 students have gone on to publish books upon completion of the program, including Vincent Lam, Sandra Gulland, Anthony De Sa, and Kim Echlin.
Mentoring the next generation of writers will help ensure that distinctive Canadian voices will continue to be heard. With this goal in mind, the Writers’ Trust provides funding toward scholarships each year to students enrolled in the Correspondence Program. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of talent as well as financial need.

“Your friends and family are good readers, but most of them love you more than they love your text, or they have limited experience. The correspondence program gives you a professional writer who loves good text above all else, and will try to help you write a good book.” Antanas Sileika
Artistic Director, Humber School for Writers
