How do you get paid to write? If you’re writing fiction, creative nonfiction, or poetry, the question seems moot: everyone knows there’s no money in literature. But this panel offers an answer. Writers explain how they secured grants, fellowships, and arts funding from sources ranging from nonprofits to universities to the federal government. They share ways to strengthen your applications for funding at every stage of your writing career, from emerging to established.
