Amplified Voices Sex Blogger Scholarship
Sponsored by Early to Bed, Fuze, We-Vibe, Dame, Crystal Delights, and OhMiBod
In recent years, the sex blogging community has grown and flourished exponentially. In response to this growth, it is vital that we do what we can to help amplify the voices of people who have, in the past, been under-represented. Especially in our current political landscape, the power of sex bloggers to destigmatize sex and make others feel less alone cannot be overstated. However, too often valuable voices are stifled by discrimination, circumstance, or simply self-doubt.
We want to combat the notion that sex blogging is only accessible to white, affluent, able-bodied cis people, and the sponsors of this scholarship — Early to Bed, Fuze, We-Vibe, Dame, Crystal Delights, and OhMiBod — feel just as strongly as we do. Thanks to their incredibly generous sponsorship, we are offering six (yes, SIX!) individual scholarships to our fall 2017 group class, to be held online from September 1st through October 20th.
Whether you’re already blogging or completely new to the scene, we encourage you to apply! The scholarship is open to all, but priority will be given to candidates with financial need as well as intersecting and marginalized identities (e.g. people of color, disabled folks, and gender and sexual minorities).
Applying for the scholarship is simple: in 300 words or less, please tell us about yourself and why you want to be a sex blogger (or why you are one already). What’s your story? What drives you? What do you hope to accomplish?
Email your application to Epiphora and JoEllen at email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications are due July 25, 2017.
Candidates will be chosen and applicants contacted by August 1.
