South Arts is offering grants to organizations that invite writers of fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry to give readings and conduct educational workshops for the public.
Deadline: May 1.
Through its Literary Arts Touring, South Arts will award grants of up to $2,500 for literary projects that contain both a public reading and an educational component such as a writing workshop. The project can include single or multiple writers involved in an event (writers series, festivals, or single engagements). The maximum grant request is 50% of the writer fee.
To be eligible, organizations must be designated as tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and/or a governmental organization located in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. Applications will not be accepted from organizations that do not have a DUNS number.
