Are you crafting your masterpiece? Have you made yours already, and are looking for some money to get you through your next? You should probably apply for a grant from the Canada Council for the Arts. Here’s the program description from the site:
The Grants for Professional Writers program covers subsistence, project and travel expenses. The Creative Writing Grants component gives Canadian authors (emerging, mid-career and established) time to write new literary works, including novels, short stories, poetry, children’s and young adults’ literature, graphic novels, exploratory writing and literary non-fiction.
Exploratory writing is writing that uses technology to present literature in an innovative manner and (or) explores forms of literature outside the conventions of the novel, short story or poem.
Can’t hurt to apply! Grants range from $3,000 to $25,000. Deadline is coming up on October 1, so get your pens a-wagglin’. Head to the Canada Council for the Arts website for more info.
