The 2014 Grotto Scholar

 We are excited to partner with the members of the San Francisco Writers’ Grotto  and the students of the Writers’ Grotto Classes in supporting a student! Since 1994, the Grotto has pioneered a the concept of providing an office for creative, self-employed people who work nontraditional schedules. It provides a place where working writers can build a community of peers. Writers’ Grotto Classes, which are taught by Grotto writers, offers close to twenty classes a week at our offices near South Park.

The Grotto scholarship supports a student with an interest in writing. Meet Ashley Ornelas, the 2013 Grotto Scholar! Ashley is a senior at Balboa High School and wants to be an English teacher.

Thank you to Ashley’s generous donors!
