The Speculative Literature Foundation has announced one month remains to submit applications for the Older Writers Grant.
SLF is offering two $500 grants to applicants who are at least 50 years of age and just starting to work at a professional level as a speculative fiction writer.
They have only 18 applications right now and would like to see more. Writers are urged to send their best work — the writing samples can be previously published.
Founded in January, 2004 to promote literary quality in speculative fiction, the all-volunteer Foundation is led by Mary Anne Mohanraj and 30 other committed volunteers.
