The deadline to apply for the Speculative Literature Foundation’s Older Writers Grant is fast approaching: applications must be in by March 31.
The $750 grant is available to any writer of speculative literature age 50 or older who is just beginning to work professionally in the field.
For full details about applying for the grant, please see the SLF website. There is no entry fee. SLF will announce the recipient on May 15.
K. C. Ball was the 2012 grant winner.
