MARCH 31 DEADLINE for the 2012 Mira's List Art Contest!

Hi Everyone,

Sorry my blog design keeps changing. It's been quite annoying trying to find something that looks half-way decent on blogger. I know. I should switch to Wordpress and I probably will eventually. Anyway, to be continued....

So soon, very soon, I have some great new things to post....but first: THIS SATURDAY, March 31st, is the last day to enter the Mira's List 2012 Art Contest! It's easy as pie to enter. Go here and see how you can win $500 with very little effort. And please spread the word:

More stuff coming soon, I promise. I am trying to work on my CV this week and send out cover letters for teaching jobs, etc. I may have won a big award this month for my book, The Memory Palace (The National Book Critics Circle Award for Autobiography, if you can believe it) but it is an award with no money attached and the wolf is at the door, begging to get in. If you get inspired, feel free to donate so we can pay some of our bills that are sitting on the table, looking forlorn.

More to come soon....

Welcome to Mira's List

This blog provides information on upcoming grants, fellowships and residencies for artists, writers, composers, and media artists. It is for serious professionals only, from emerging to mid-career to established. I also publish information for graduate students from time to time. However, I do not publish information on exhibition or publishing opportunities, nor do I advertise artist retreats and workshops that charge money. At least that is my current policy. For more info on where to exhibit or publish, please see my links section which I try to periodically update. I sift through hundreds of search engines and websites to find opportunities for YOU dear artist. In return, I ask you to pass the information along to those who need it. Also, since this is a free blog, I don't always have the time to weed carefully through everything. If you find a grant or website or residency that is not up-to-date, is dodgy in some way, or is no longer in existence, please let me know! Also, if you stay somewhere at one of the residencies I suggest and have a good experience, I want that feedback too. Please check my FAQs at the top right side bar if you have questions before starting your search. Best wishes and happy hunting!
