Hippocampus Magazine congratulates Patricia Blakesslee and and Michael Fischer, recipients of HippoCamp 2017’s two full scholarships. Each will receive complimentary registration to the conference and a travel stipend — and their heartfelt and skillful essays will be considered for the Writing Life column in a future issue of Hippocampus.
Selecting finalists from our pool of applicants was not an easy task. Everyone who submitted an application demonstrated financial need and had solid reasons for wanting to attend a professional development writing conference, and many of the “lessons learned” essays were compelling and informative.
We’re looking forward to welcoming Patricia and Michael — as well as our runner-up partial scholarship recipients — to HippoCamp 2017 this September.
