EA Winner: Whitney Scharer

Emerging Artist Award: Literature

“The Emerging Artist grant I received from the St. Botolph Club Foundation provided me with much-needed funding for a research trip, but perhaps even more importantly, it made me feel that I could and should┬ákeep going with my novel. As all writers know, writing a novel is a long and solitary slog, and it’s crucial to feel supported along the way. I couldn’t be more grateful to the St. Botolph Club Foundation for their belief in my work.”
