Having good writing skills regardless of your field of study and profession can set you apart from others and give you an advantage in the job market. It is believed that a good book, article, novel and story can make as much impact on people as verbal communication. Nowadays, writing as a career has become the choice of most students who like to do creative work rather than a 9 to 5 job. To support and recognize such young and emerging writers, Smith Publicity has made a funding program called “Book Marketing Scholarship”. Any high school senior and college freshmen, sophomores, and juniors can take advantage of this opportunity. This funding program will help students amplify their writing talent and show it to the world. It can be a great opportunity if you are thinking to pursue a career as a full-time writer.
This scholarship is $2,000 and will be granted to the student who writes an amazing and engaging essay on persuasive writing. To participate in this program, candidates will have to compose an essay of 1500 words in length and send it to Smith Publicity through email. All the received essays will be reviewed by a group of four Smith Publicity publicists and staff members. The same group will select the winner of this program. The winner essay will be selected based on the quality of the content. The award amount, which is $2,000, will be sent directly to the college/university where the winner is currently studying. The amount is to be used only to cover the tuition.
Smith Publicity has completed the journey from a one-person operation run in a bedroom office to one of the leading book publicity agencies in the world. This foundation was brought into existence by Dan Smith, who wanted to offer unparalleled customer service and work to exceed not just meet the expectation of its customer. So far, this organization has worked with thousands of authors and publishers, entrepreneurs, consultants, publicly-held companies, and businesses in various industries.
