The Minnesota Writers Career Initiative provides financial support and professional assistance to advanced writers to develop and implement multifaceted plans to help them enter the next phase of their careers. Two to four winners will be selected to receive grants of no more than $8,000 to underwrite career development plans of their own design. Proposals should include the applicant's vision of his or her career path and how it would benefit from the proposed plan. It must also be compatible with the realities of the literary market.
I received a 2007 Writers Career Initiative Grant, and it was extremely helpful. I strongly recommend it if you're eligible to apply!
