#JoinTheAgenda: Art is the Truth Scholarship

The Guild wants to stifle all art, but in a world where everything is a lie, art is the truth!

The Agenda is recruiting and you can join the resistance!

Win one of three scholarships! And books for your library!

Scholarship Contest #2

Calling all artists: Sharpen your pencils, tune up your guitar, or get out your crayons.  Create original art based on the Crewel World and you can win!

The What:

- You decide.  A painting, a drawing, a song, a poem.  Anything inspired by the Crewel World.

The Prize: 

- I'll also be giving away a $100 cash scholarship to the winner to be used to continue your artistic education.  Use it for new materials, books, tuition, towards a computer.  That's up to you.
- Up to two runners up will receive signed first editions of Altered.

- If your student wins, I'll donate a signed hardcover of CREWEL to your classroom or library.  Click here for a downloadable poster you can share with your kids.

And stay tuned for the next scholarship contest which will be announced in 2 weeks!


  1. Just a question: If we write a song, would we have to also sing/perform it or would the lyrics be enough?

    Thank you!

  2. That is totally up to you! My UK publisher used soundcloud last year for a song competition, so that is an option. If you just want to send the lyrics, that's cool, too.
