The deadline for this year’s application is May 1st – apply now!
Want to attend a writers’ workshop, conference, seminar or retreat in 2016-2017? Would a little extra money give you a much-needed kick in the pants to get away from your desk and expand your horizons? Then apply for the Colorado Authors’ League Grant!
Each year, Colorado Authors’ League offers $1,000 in grants to current members who want to attend a writers’ workshop, conference, seminar, or retreat. We divide the money between a minimum of two and a maximum of five members. CAL Grants must be used as a reimbursement to help offset expenses of writer enrichment opportunities as described above. They are not intended for degree programs.
Answer the following questions on a single page. Do not put your name or address on the page, but do attach a 3×5 card with your name, address, email address and phone number. Here are the questions:
1. Tell us about the program you will attend. Include facts like its name, format, location and length, but also explain how this specific program matches your personality, writing style and professional development needs.
2. Tell us how much the program costs (tuition, room and board, transportation, etc.) and how much grant money you hope to receive.
3. Pretend this program took your career to a whole new level, making you a huge success and a media darling. A reporter asks how the program changed your life, improved your writing or inspired you. How would you answer?
4. If you receive a grant, how will you share your experience with CAL members: through a luncheon presentation? A newsletter article? Other?
