WILKES-BARRE — Patrick Kelley of Clarks Summit was awarded a Pay It Forward scholarship to enter the Wilkes University graduate creative writing program.
Wilkes University creative writing faculty and program alumni give a $2,500 award to a writer they feel would be an excellent fit for the program. Wilkes alumna Rachel Strayer awarded the scholarship to Kelley. This one-time payment is used to offset tuition during the student’s first term of study. Kelley entered the program in January 2016.
