Poets & Writers

From Poets & Writers:

Applying for Funding

Welcome, Early Birds
The earlier you apply for your winter/spring 2013 events, the better your chances of receiving support. Although we prioritize events that reach underserved audiences, we award the majority of our grants on a first-come, first-served basis. Therefore, funding becomes more competitive as we move through the fiscal year, which runs from July 1 to June 30.
