Bonus Edition: (4) Grants To Consider
Imagine if you had extra cash to put toward your creative business goals.
This week we launched Grants For Creators, an idea I’ve been sitting on since last summer. In 48 hours the newsletter had gained over 100 subscribers!
I’m excited you are here and so happy to see that many are already taking action. Let’s get funded!
When it comes to the funding opportunities I plan to share in this newsletter, many have deadlines, so in addition to our biweekly Monday morning newsletters (the next one will be February 7th), I’ll occasionally pop in your inbox like this.
I really do not want you to miss out.
The opportunities below have deadlines coming up quickly, so without further ado, here we go. Good luck!
1. Fearless Fund
The Fearless Fund awards Women of Color-owned small businesses $10,000- $20,000 each and access to a peer network to help you build and grow your business.
Minimum annual revenue of $100,000 is strongly preferred.

2. For Writers
The 2022 Good Story Grant aims to help two writers reach the next step in their creative journeys. This grant is open to writers of all skill levels and working in all genres and categories.
The award is $1,500, used however you’d like (take a research trip, start a podcast, attend a writers' conference, etc.) as long as it has to do with writing and helps you tell your story.
You’ll need to get one letter of recommendation from a mentor or teacher about your writing and creative activities.
