Whether you are an established or emerging writer, consider applying for grant support from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts (AFA). The Literary Arts Project Grant Stream supports almost all tasks related to the writing life: from honing your craft in writing courses to marketing your book, from conducting research for a new project to support while you write that first draft. Join Jonathan Meakin, arts development consultant responsible for the AFA's literary arts programming, for a discussion of program eligibility, application requirements, and the assessment process; tips for developing a proposal and budget; and much more. Participants are strongly encouraged to bring a copy of the Literary Arts Project Grant application form and guidelines to the session. The form and guidelines are available here: www.affta.ab.ca/individual-project-grant-program.aspx.
