FROM SOME OF OUR PREVIOUS SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS:
BONI was a game-changer for me. The critical feedback, the top-notch instruction, and the overall experience gave me the confidence and discipline I needed to think of myself as a writer, which was an important step in helping me find an agent and a publisher. I highly recommend this workshop.”
— Erika Robuck, bestselling author of Hemingway’s Girl and Call Me Zelda
BONI, what can I say? There aren’t enough words, there really aren’t. But if I were forced to sum it up in just a few, I’d have to say — game changing event. The advice, guidance and encouragement I received from the staff at BONI, along with Don’s incredibly wise and gifted teachings, lead to the completion of my current novel, Lumière, and the courage to self-publish it. With an excerpt from Lumière, I won the 2012 BONI intensive scholarship, without which I would not have been able to attend. As I said before, there aren’t enough words. BONI is a game changing event.
