The Speculative Literature Foundation’s $500 Older Writers Grant is awarded annually to a writer who is fifty years of age or older at the time of grant application, and is intended to assist such writers who are just starting to work at a professional level. The SLF are currently offering two $500 grants annually, to be used as each writer determines will best assist his or her work. The Older Writers Grant is awarded by a jury on the basis of merit. Applications for the Older Writers Grant are considered from January 1st to March 31st, annually.
For more information, see the SLF website.
While you are here, please take a moment to support Locus with a one-time or recurring donation. We rely on reader donations to keep the magazine and site going, and would like to keep the site paywall free, but WE NEED YOUR FINANCIAL SUPPORT to continue quality coverage of the science fiction and fantasy field.
