Are you confused, embarrassed, or scared about writing an artist’s statement? Are you unsure about how to apply for artists’ residencies, grants, or fellowships? Then this workshop is for you!

We will learn how to write compelling and clear statements of purpose, and create strong applications for grants, fellowships, and artists’ residencies. Writers will have the chance to brainstorm and create their own templates in class, get feedback on their personal statements, and feel confident in future forays into the wider literary world. We will also discuss tools for managing submissions as well as researching and accessing online writing resources.
