Taos Toolbox Launches New Scholarship: The TERRAN AWARD

January 30, 2018

When astronauts look down on Earth from orbit, they don’t see borders, national boundaries, or linguistic groups; they see one world, a gorgeous blue globe spinning in space, streaked with clouds. Will humanity will ever reach the stars? If we do, it won’t be Americans who get there. It won’t be the Chinese or the Russians or the British or the French or the Brazilians or the Kiwis or the South Africans or the Indians or the folk of any other nation state either. It will be humanity; in the language of the SF world, it will be Terrans or Earthlings or Earthmen. The future belongs to all the peoples of the world.

The Taos Toolbox, the graduate level writing workshop that Walter Jon Williams and Nancy Kress run every summer in the mountains of northern New Mexico announces A new scholarship, sponsored by George R. R. Martin.

Are you an aspiring SF writer from a non-English-speaking country? Then the TERRAN AWARD is for you.

The TERRAN AWARD will be given annually, and will cover all tuition and fees to the Toolbox. Travel and meals not covered. Applicants will need to speak and write in English, but must be from from a country where English is not the primary language. Walter Jon and Nancy and the Toolbox staff will select the winner. For more information on applying for the workshop, and the scholarship, check out the Toolbox website at http://www.taostoolbox.com. If you have further questions, you can contact WJW at wjw@taostoolbox.com
