It is about that time to start thinking about summer writing conferences and workshops. It can be tricky to find ones that fit your interests and budget exactly. Once you do, it is important to research them and make sure that they live up to your expectations and level of expertise.
To start your research for programs and funding opportunities, I want to bring your attention to an amazing resource: Mira’s List. This blog, run by author and artist Mira Bartók, regularly announces opportunities to apply for that usually include grants and residencies. Be sure to look through her list of links.
Here is how she describes her blog in a nutshell:
GRANTS. FELLOWSHIPS. RESIDENCIES. RESOURCES. Mira's List is a free blog for artists, writers, composers and others in the arts. Here you will find up-to-date information, resources and deadlines for grants, fellowships and international residencies. Money, time and a place to create.
