Three of the new Fiyah grants previously announced are open to applications until May 15th. The $1,000 Rest, Craft, and Study grants are “intended to assist Black writers of speculative fiction in defraying costs associated with honing their craft,” and will be awarded as part of Juneteenth every year.
The grants are open to writers of speculative fiction who are 18 years or older. “FIYAH Grants, like our other submissions, are open to Black people of the African Diaspora. This definition is globally inclusive (Black anywhere in the world) and also applies to mixed/biracial and Afro-appended people regardless of gender identity or orientation.” The grants are currently limited to prose.
For more information about how to apply, see Fiyah‘s website.
