This site is designed for contributions to a scholarship in memory of Hillary Gravendyk, a gifted poet, scholar, teacher, and dear friend. The scholarship will be for a first-time poet at the Squaw Valley Community of Writers; the recipient will be chosen by Robert Hass and Meg Gravendyk. Hillary was a fellow at SVCW in 2010 and this scholarship was started by her “Jeffery House” housemates as a way of remembering and honoring her.
For more about Hillary, including a video of her reading from her book Harm, see the links below.
To read one of her poems or for the contact page, hover over the black square on the left.

Donations made before May 5 will be applied to that year’s scholarship.
