Have you ever been reading a website or Twitter and stumbled upon someone’s good news that they received a grant or state award to help fund their writing? I have. And I’ve always wondered how things like that work. It’s with all this in mind that I reached out to expert C. Hope Clark, who has agreed to teach a new webinar: “How to Find Grants and Financial Resources to Fund Your Writing” on Thursday, May 5, 2011.
It all goes down at 1 p.m., EST, Thursday, May 5, 2011, and lasts 75 minutes. Please keep in mind that if you cannot attend the live webinar because of a schedule conflict, you still receive the entire presentation (recorded), and can still communicate questions to the instructor and get any freebies associated with the event.
