I’m a big fan of Holly Lisle’s eCourses for writers, so I was ecstatic when she announced her newest course, How To Revise Your Novel (HTRYN). However, since the only novels I wish to revise are still in progress, I couldn’t sign up for the course’s first session. Though I do plan to enroll if Holly offers another session at the end of the year.
One of the reasons I like Holly is that she’s always finding ways to help others as she helps herself. Yes, her eCourses bring in revenue, but she created the HTRYN Scholarship Contest to give deserving writers a chance to win their way into the course.
Contestants submitted video demonstrations of the “101 Worst Things That Go Wrong In First Draft,” then Holly selected the weekly finalists. Now we get to vote for the six scholarship winners.
Voting is open from January 25 through February 1, 2010 and you can vote for up to three videos. The prizes to be awarded, how voting works, and a list of the finalists are available on Holly’s blog. The finalists’ videos run from one to four minutes long, so it won’t take you more than 30 minutes to view them all and cast your vote.
Please help these writers win a spot in HTRYN and cast your vote today!
What are you still doin’ here? Go vote or else I’ll send my minions.
