Fund Your Creative Project: Grant Writing for Literary Artists

Friday, August 4, 2017
3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Cascade C

In this hands-on workshop, writers learn to craft compelling and lively grant applications to fund their creative projects. Based on Gigi Rosenberg’s book, The Artist’s Guide to Grant Writing, the workshop covers how to research funding, enlist a team to help write an application, decode application questions, and let grant writing propel your career forward. Discover how to create a budget, what criteria to use for choosing a strong work sample and why you need to answer the questions that many applications don’t ask. This workshop prepares you for having the best shot at winning grants and residencies and clarifying your career goals as a professional writer.
