2008 Grants for Emerging MN Writers & Spoken Word Poets
Intermedia Arts presents
The 2008 SASE/JEROME Grants for Emerging MN Writers
Deadline to Apply: September 15, 2007
The 2008 VERVE GRANTS for Emerging MN Spoken Word Poets
Deadline to Apply: November 2, 2007
Calling all Minnesota writers and spoken word poets! Applications are now available for the 2008 SASE/Jerome and VERVE Grants, which award grants of up to $5,000 to emerging Minnesota writers, and up to $3,000 to emerging Minnesota spoken word poets. An emerging artist is defined a writer whose work demonstrates a sustained level of accomplishment and commitment, but who has not yet received recognition/acknowledgement as an established creator from fellow writers and/or other arts professionals.
The purpose of this program is to make grants to support the creation and production of new artistic works by emerging Minnesota writers and spoken word poets, and to contribute to the professional advancement of those artists.
Our goal is to provide financial assistance, professional encouragement, and recognition to a culturally and socio-economically diverse group of literary artists, in an effort to strengthen and support Minnesota's literary community.
Applications and complete program information can be downloaded from our website: www.intermediaarts.org. Contact us at (612) 871-4444 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information! This program is made possible by the Jerome Foundation.
