Demystifying Grant Writing
An Introduction for Creatives.
This workshop is for authors and other creatives who have little or no experience writing grants for arts council funding. Registrants who have an idea for a project or are in the planning stages of writing a grant application will benefit from this workshop.
Participants will become familiar with the granting process and how it works, understand the main components of grant applications, recognize the phases involved in creating a grant application and gain hands-on practice planning and developing specific components for their grant applications.
The workshop is designed for 5 to 15 participants.

Todd Besant is an author, editor, publisher, reader, introvert, secret blogger, stargazer, freethinker, powerlifter, kitchen dancer, and car singer. He is a novice iPhoneographer and is keen to enhance his skills and to dip his fingers into lomography.
He is overly fond of fine pencils, cool notebooks, pocket knives, waxed canvas shoulder bags, Moscot eyeglasses, coffee, bourbon, flat caps, clothing for shorter men, and men’s grooming products–especially hair pomades, beard oils and balms, and anti-aging creams. Todd is taller online, comprehensively skeptical, and as analogue as possible under the circumstances.
He is a settler on Turtle Island. Todd lives on Treaty 1 Land that is the territories of Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene Peoples and the Traditional Homeland of the Métis Nation, in Winnipeg, MB, a city carpet tacked to the still damp clay bed of a proglacial lake created during the Holocene Glacial Retreat.
