How To Apply for a National Endowment for the Arts Grant

Do you want to apply for a National Endowment for the Arts grant for your literary project? 

You can register for a free online webinar with NEA literature director Ira Silverberg. 

Art Works literature grants apply only to organizations. There are two deadlines.

March 7, 2013 “for literary publishing projects that fall under the area of engagement.”

August 8, 2013 “for audience and professional development projects that fall under the area of engagement, as well as projects under the areas of creation, learning, or livability.”

If you want to explore projects that received NEA grants, follow the links below…

1. Spotlight on YMCA Writer’s Voice in Billings: An interview with Corby Skinner, director of the YMCA Writer’s Voice in Billings, on the Native Voices program, a series of readings by nine Native American artists from diverse Native cultures.
