The Art of Applying: Fellowships, Residencies, and Grants

Knowing how to write a strong application for fellowships, residencies, or grants is an essential skill for all writers. This class will teach you how to identify and apply for a wide range of funding opportunities. Topics covered will include finding the right grant for you; selecting the best writing sample; and tips and tricks for a winning statement of purpose and artist’s statement. Students will have the opportunity to draft and workshop a condensed artist’s statement.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
