Speculative Literature Foundation Offers Older Writers Grant

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.

Guidelines to apply for the Older Writers Grant can be found here. Questions can be emailed to Managing Director, Malon Edwards, at: managing_dir@speclit.org.

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.

  1. I qualify. Hmm, maybe if I won a grant it would help me fool people into thinking I can write decent stories. Might as well give it a shot!
