TENNESSEE ARTS COMMISSION
The deadline for this opportunity is May 17, 2016, or when all funds are allocated—whichever comes first.
This special opportunities grant will provide up to $500 for individual applicants or $1000 for organizational applicants registering a minimum of two or more staff toward travel & registration fees to attend the Tennessee Arts Commission statewide conference. The conference will be held June 7-10, 2016 at Bradley Academy and Patterson Park Community Center in Murfreesboro, TN. Bringing together arts administrators, educators, and artists in a new way, this convening combines the former Create education institute with the biennial statewide arts conference.
AUTHORS LEAGUE FUND
Since 1917, the Authors League Fund has been helping professional writers and dramatists who find themselves in financial need because of medical or health-related problems, temporary loss of income, or other misfortune. Most of those we help suffer severe health problems but have inadequate insurance; some face eviction; many are older writers whose income has ceased through no fault of their own. The Fund exists to help professional writers continue their careers, even their lives, with dignity by providing open-ended, interest-free, no-strings-attached loans to pay for pressing expenses. The Authors League Fund provides assistance to book authors, dramatists, and freelance writers, including journalists and poets.
