Writers have the ability to shape our ideas and the world we live in. They have the chance to put their thoughts to paper (or maybe a computer screen) to live on for generations to come. If you aspire to be the next great American author, like Ernest Hemingway or Maya Angelou, you may be looking to pursue a degree in writing. Winning scholarships for writers shouldn’t be a novel idea, either. There are hundreds of essay contests for writers to put their skills to work for free college dollars. Be sure to check out these other great opportunities, too, in our directory of scholarships for writing majors.
