Travel stipends competition for the American University of Paris Summer School

The American University of Paris has alerted Sisters in Crime to two of its 2020 Summer Schools.

The first is its Creative Writing Institute, which offers participants the opportunity to write and share poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction in a workshop-style format working with our accomplished faculty members, Siân Dafydd, Biswamit Dwibedy, and Amanda Dennis. This year it is pleased to offer two competitive travel stipends of up to €500 each to outstanding Creative Writing Institute participants. All participants who wish to be considered for the travel stipends must submit their applications by March 1, 2020. Winners will be announced in early April.

2020 also marks the inaugural year of its International Journalism Institute. Over this intensive three-week course, participants will learn how to navigate a foreign city in search of news, meet the professionals who work a foreign beat, and learn how to compile and file a multi-media story under time pressure. Participants will learn with expert AUP Global Communications faculty and guests from organizations like France 24, Le Monde, and Agence France-Presse, and by the end of the three-week summer school will have a small multimedia portfolio.
