South Arts Literary Grant

Posted on 24 April 2010 Saturday

Deadline: May 17, 2010

South Arts, with support from the National Endowment for the Arts, is offering writer fee support grants for literary presentations. These grants support literary arts presenting organizations for engagements by guest writers (fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry) from outside the presenter’s state. Colleges, universities and other school-based presenters are eligible to apply and grant funds can be used to support fees for multiple writers. Literary projects must include a public reading and an educational component.

Projects should take place between July 1, 2010 and June 30, 2011. The maximum request is 50% of the writer’s fee, up to a total grant request of $2,500. Only nonprofit and governmental presenting organizations in South Arts’ nine-state region are eligible to apply (includes Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee).

The guidelines, review criteria, and application instructions are available on their website.
