Tuition & Financial Aid

The cost of attending the 2019 Sewanee Young Writers' Conference is $2400. This fee includes tuition, room, and board. Transportation to and from the Nashville airport is available at an additional fee of $150. There is no application fee. 

The SYWC, a tuition-driven program, is only able to offer limited financial aid for a few families who cannot afford the full cost of the program.  If you are seeking financial assistance, you will need to fill out a financial aid application. The financial aid application covers a variety of questions that allow you to articulate your family's need for support to pay for the program.  

You can find the financial aid application here. If you have questions, please feel free to contact us at
