Greetings long lost friends,

I am still alive and kicking but not doing this blog anymore. I do, however, go around the country and speak about the things that are on this blog: grants, fellowhips, residencies, how to get published, what opportunities are out there for all the arts, how to write a successful grant application, etc. And, as I state in the post below, Mira's List is still a great resource to peruse. I have many useful links, articles, interviews, etc. And  I will continue to share arts opportunities information on my Mira's List facebook page as well as twitter, so feel free to follow me there.

I am currently speaking at various events, universities and other venues about how to find time, money and a place to create. The next one coming up is at the TransCultural Exchange Conference in Boston next week, Oct. 9-13. I will be moderating a panel on how to fund your creative projects on Friday, October 11th, 2013. Go here for more information:

I will also be in Kansas City next month, speaking at two venues, one on opportunities in the arts on Sunday, Nov. 3rd:
and on how to get published on November 4th:

 If you are interested in bringing me to your institution, please write me at [email protected] for fee information and availability.

I also skype with different institutions, in case your organization or school doesn't have enough to bring me there. Just email me and ask about my skyping fees.

So make great art and pay it forward....share information about opportunities to those you know and to those who need it most.


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 However, I do not publish information on exhibition or publishing opportunities, nor do I advertise artist retreats and workshops that charge money.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!
