Loft Mentorships, Grants, Scholarships

A quick note to let you know deadlines are approaching for some of the Loft Literary Center’s Mentorships, Grants, and Scholarships.

Latino Cycle of the Inroads Mentorship: The Loft Literary Center invites emerging writers of Latino descent to apply to the 2009 Loft Inroads Program. This program offers writers the chance to engage in nine weeks of craft seminars, individual conferences, and public readings, all with an established local mentor sharing the participants’ ethnic heritage.

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 up to $10,000 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.

Scholarships and Workstudy: The Loft offers workstudy opportunities and scholarships for many of their classes and workshops. I know a lot of starving artists out there who could use the practice of a class, and the connections one would make with teachers and other writers. Deadline THIS WEEKEND.
