For more grant offers check out these websites periodically: Mira’s List and Res Artis (can be sorted by deadlines or countries, however not all are free in this list, some are paid retreats).   Read also our former posts: Get the Money! Apply! and 10 Important Steps when Applying for Grants.

Everyone knows Kickstarter and IndieGoGo in the meantime. But there are other sources to fund writing projects, workshops, prints, publicizing efforts or lectures. Writers and small publishers are offered quite a number of grants and funding money.  Most are geared towards projects, rather than core funding. Think writing projects for example instead of business/office supply or salaries.
Show an interest in the Funders’ organization, call them for further information and find out the name of the person you should address the proposal if it is not stated specifically.

Study the organization and successful grants. Some of them make samples of grant proposels they have funded online available. You can see the “language” they prefer and get an idea what type of projects were successful. Learn and understand the meanings of the vocabulary being used in grant guidelines. It’s important how well your written presentation answers their questions.

APPLY: 13 Residencies and Grants for US Writers

.

park bench

.

New Year means new resolutions. Why not this one: finding space and time to work on your goals and write uninterrupted from daily chores and demands?  It is a myth that you have to be famous in order to receive a grant or become a writer-in-residence.  Most people who are awarded grants are on their way up, not already there. Unnecessary fear of being rejected prevents a lot of writers from applying for opportunities that are out there. But the numbers are in your favor: in average, 1 in 3 applications will be granted. 

If you have never written a grant proposal before, do some research on the topic before you begin. Numerous how-to listings and guidelines offer insights to novice grant writers, and even those with experience. Understand the meanings of the vocabulary being used in grant guidelines. As more applications you write, as easier and faster it gets.

The writer would also participate in Museum winter programming.

A stipend of up to $2000 per month, depending on available funding, will be provided.
Please include a resume (maximum two pages), a list of publications, a one-page proposal of anticipated community activities, and a sample of work in progress (20 pages); with reasons why the residency would further your work. Forward your application package to Sandra Parrish, Museum at Campbell River, Box 70 Stn A, Campbell River, BC V9W 4Z9.

The Artist-In-Residence Program at Rocky Mountain National Park offers professional WRITERS, composers, and visual and performing artists the opportunity to pursue their artistic discipline while being surrounded by the park’s inspiring landscape. Selected artists stay in a historic cabin for two-week periods from June through September.
During summer and fall the William Allen White Cabin is the home of Rocky Mountain National Park’s Artist-In-Residence.
The cabin above Moraine Park was the summer retreat of William Allen White from 1912 to 1943. A nationally recognized journalist and editor of the Emporia Gazette (Kansas), White’s spirit lives on with the contemporary artists who work in his cabin today.

The cabin has a high-beamed living/dining area with a large fireplace, one bedroom and bathroom, and a small kitchen. It is fully furnished including linens and kitchenware. Artists must provide their own groceries and may choose to bring personal amenities. During summer and fall the William Allen White Cabin is the home of Rocky Mountain National Park’s Artist-In-Residence.
Artists will present two 45-minute public programs during their residencies. This interaction can be tailored to an individual’s medium, interest, and experience using only a few hours of one’s stay. Programs can be demonstrations, talks, exploratory walks, or performances.
Be prepared to work in high desert, summer weather conditions that include high winds, low relative humidity and temperatures reaching 100 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and lows reaching roughly 40 degrees at night. Deadline for 2013 is March 15, 2013.

Caldera Writers and Artists in Residence, Oregon

.

Another Writers and Artists Residency to apply early next year. Mark your Calendar!

Every year we invite artists from all over the world to our Caldera Arts Center near Sisters, Oregon, for monthlong residences.  Artists are provided free, private A-frame cabins and share access to wet and dry studios, a darkroom, a kiln, editing facilities and rehearsal and performance space.  Because we believe a range of backgrounds enhances the communal experience, residencies are open to artists from any field, including WRITERS, as well as scientists and environmentalists.

Caldera’s Artists in Residence program offers the gift of time and space.  Residents are given a free cabin, 24-hour access to studios and the time and space to create.  No money changes hands.  Residents are responsible for food, travel, materials and other expenses.  By design, the residents form a small community of 5–12 artists, depending on the group.

A weekly meal is shared and collaboration is encouraged.Artists aren’t required to finish a project during their residency, but are encouraged to share their work with the nearby community.  Many artists give presentations in the neighboring town of Sisters, or area schools, or migrate toward Caldera’s youth program and help with kids’ art projects.

Residencies last one month, and take place in January, February and March. 2014 applications will open in early January 2013.

HISTORY OF ARTISTS IN NATIONAL PARKS

Artists were among the first to record the visual beauty and the drama of the American West on canvas and in photos. Carleton Watkins, Ansel Adams, Thomas Moran, William Henry Jackson, and others awakened a nation to the magnificent waterfalls, geyser basins, and wildlife found in what would become some of our nation’s most revered national parks.  They looked beyond nature as a raw resource; they spoke in defense of disappearing wildlife and vegetation. They saw beauty and virtue in places promised to the future.

The Joshua Tree National Park Artist-in-Residence Program offers visual, performing and literary artists a residency from 2-6 weeks long during the months of March, April, October, and November of each year.

The accommodations within the park are located at the Lost Horse Ranger Station, in a rustic and self-sufficient cabin with nearby panoramic views of the park. In exchange for the adventure of living and working in a national park, the resident artist will have the opportunity to create a body of work and to share it with the surrounding regional and Southern California communities.  Deadline for this year July 1, 2012.
