51 MN Writers/Artists Grant Opportunities, 2018-2019 (Deadlines Subject to Change)

For Minnesota artists in the Twin Cities, there are several excellent opportunities to fund your projects and ideas. What follows is by no means complete but reflects a good list of at least 51 opportunities many of my readers and colleagues might have a shot at as poets, writers, playwrights, visual artists, videographers, and other artistic scoundrels. Some of them will require you to be working with a non-profit organization. The majority of them are free to apply to. I’ll update this list monthly if/when more firm dates are announced.

 Obviously, entries with a “?” are best guesses that assume the program has not been discontinued, and that it will take place around roughly the same schedule. I’d provide links to go directly to the applications, but as an artist, I also believe artists have to meet each other halfway, and you have to show some initiative, too. As a word of advice for beginning artists, few of these are applications you can finish in one night, so prepare accordingly. One cannot wait for success to happen, they have to make success happen.
