New Grant for Connecticut Writers

The Housatonic Valley Cultural Alliance in Danbury recently announced the following grant:

New grant for Writers!
2010 Solo writers fellowship

The Solo Writers Fellowship provides a limited number of awards to writers of various genres who live or work in Connecticut. Four fellowships of $2,375 each will be awarded based on a panel's review of writer's application, work samples and professional work history. The purpose of this grant program is to reinforce the importance and value of writers within our community by supporting activities related to the artistic process, such as, but not limited to, rental fees, travel costs and/or living expenses while creating new work. We envision this grant program to support several weeks' worth of living and working in a temporary space that fosters imagination, focus and creativity.

Applications are due March 1, 2010. For more information, including Guidelines and Application forms, please go to

This grant is made possible through the Beatrice Fox Auerbach Foundation Fund at the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving, and administered by the Greater Hartford Arts Council.
