  • Scholarship Description
    The Horror Writers Association (HWA) is pleased to offer a variety of scholarships to assist writers looking to pursue a career as a writer of horror fiction, nonfiction, or poetry. We also offer one endowment to libraries to expand their young adult reading programs. HWA is dedicated to promoting the horror genre and providing education to both the general public (via our appearances at conventions and book festivals, our yearly StokerCons, and our iconic Bram Stoker Awards®) and to writers.

    Please note that the HWA does NOT offer grants to fiction writers. We do not hold writing competitions, and we don’t buy writing work. If you’d like to submit to HWA’s exclusive anthologies, you must be a member of HWA first – please visit the Horror Writers Association for more information on how to join. The criteria and/or conditions needed to receive funds depends on the scholarship that you are applying for.
