Wish you could get a writing grant? Stop wishing and start winning with this workshop. Learn how to craft a compelling application that will sell you and your writing project to granting organizations. Dozens of grants are open to writers: fiction, non-fiction, poetry, essays…
Get That Grant is a full-day prep session with hands-on writing activities and how-to tips, so you will:
- define and clearly state your goals
- write a project description
- prepare your writer’s bio or literary CV
- present your writing history
- all of which will be invaluable for far more than grant applications
