Here's hoping that everyone had a great Easter. I know I did. I'm exhausted!
I did make it home in time to get my application in to the SLF Older Writers Grant. Made the deadline with only an hour or so to spare.
Here's an explanation of what it is (and yes, I stole this from their website):
The SLF Older Writers Grant is awarded annually to a writer who is fifty years of age or older at the time of grant application, and is intended to assist such writers who are just starting to work at a professional level. We are currently offering one $750 grant annually, to be used as the writer determines will best assist his or her work.
What a great idea to help out older writers who are starting/following their passions later in life. It's so easy to get sidetracked with work, children, spouses, and the day-to-day routines that before a person knows what happened, they've gone from 25 to 50.
Whoever wins the scholarship will appreciate it all the more for having waited so long to be eligible!
Wish me luck!
