Funding for Writers: Grants and Fellowships (with Lyzette Wanzer)

Lyzette Wanzer



SATURDAY, OCTOBER 21  |  This workshop is open to writers who are considering applications for–or wish to learn about–writing grants, fellowships, scholarships, or residencies. We’ll cover:

• The best places to locate opportunities
• The dreaded Project Statement, Work Plan, or Goals and Objectives question
• How to demonstrate a rising trajectory (remembering that most people who are awarded grants are on their way up, not already there)
• Using headings and “buckets” to make your statement navigable
• Crafting clear, concise personal or “artist” statements (leave this class with a completed first draft in hand!)
• Why the marketing angle is so important
• Creating an effective literary resume
