Ontario Arts Council Writing Grant Deadline Approaching

The Ontario Arts Council has money to grant artists in the fields of crafts, dance, theatre, literature, music and visual & media arts. For established writers, there are grants of $12,000 available for the purpose of subsidizing their living expenses while they complete book-length works of poetry and prose. The next deadline for this program, called Writers’ Works in Progress, is June 15, 2016. The basic guidelines are as follows:

Program for: Individuals

Purpose: To assist professional writers to complete book-length works of literary merit.

Eligibility: Ontario-based professional writers may apply for support for the continuation of new work in poetry or prose.

Graphic novels and other comic arts projects will be received at a separate deadline of December 1, 2016. Please see Writers’ Works in Progress – Comic Arts for the guidelines and application.
