Knowing how to write a strong application for fellowships, residencies, or grants is an essential skill for all writers. This class will teach you how to identify and apply for a wide range of funding opportunities. Topics covered will include finding the right grant for you; selecting the best writing sample; and tips and tricks for a winning statement of purpose and artist’s statement. Students will have the opportunity to draft and workshop a condensed artist’s statement. Participants can expect further resources, templates, and examples of successful application materials to help beyond the workshop.
