Lotus Learning India/Highlights magazine, USA scholarship opportunity

I just received the following from my Writers in India group

Lotus Learning India, in collaboration with the Highlights magazine, USA, will be sponsoring a writer or illustrator to the 2006 Highlights Workshop at Chautauqua in upstate New York.

To apply for this scholarship, you need to have demonstrated commitment to the field of writing for children, in times of time and effort. The ideal candidate should have talent, strong English writing and speaking skills, and some experience in both 'life' and writing.

This is a wonderful opportunity for those who are interested in children's literature and would like to learn more about it. Please e-mail me if you would like to apply so that I could send you the downloadable application form.

Please do not e-mail me details about yourself - put these down in the form and mail to the concerned person! If you belong to any other writing lists that you think might have writers interested in this opportunity, feel free to post this there as well, but do let me know where it has been posted.

Best of luck to you all!!
