John Scalzi wrote today about a grant that the Speculative Literature Foundation is offering -- $750 for "Working class, blue-collar, poor, and homeless writers [who] have been historically underrepresented in speculative fiction[.]" I'm not going to apply for it, though I do appear to qualify, because I'm currently able to write more-or-less consistently (nevermind the fact that I've missed almost half of my blogging days in the past couple weeks and haven't started a new project since the end of NaNoWriMo). That said, if anyone who reads my blog is an aspiring speculative fiction writer that's having trouble making ends meet, I think this application might be worth a little bit of your time.
Also, I had forgotten that the Speculative Literature Foundation exists. So, I'm glad to be reminded of that.
