Online application form opens -
Monday, April 27, 2009
Application Deadline -
Monday, June 8, 2009


The Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant Program supports individual writers whose work addresses contemporary visual art through grants ranging from 3,000 to 50,000 USD.

Writers who meet the program's eligibility requirements are invited to apply in the following categories:

• articles
• blogs
• books
• new and alternative media
• short-form writing

They regret that due to legal constraints they can only fund U.S. citizens, permanent residents, and holders of O-1 visas. This is very disappointing for us arts writers this side of the Atlantic but for those of you who are lucky enough to tick the right boxes please visit http://www.artswriters.org for more guidelines and additional eligibility requirements.


The Arts Writers Grant Program is pleased to announce a new writing workshop offered in partnership with the International Association of Art Critics/USA Chapter. For more information, please visit http://www.aicausa.org
