    This is something that I talk about a lot as an often over-looked avenue for writers and artists. I'd like to collect a list of running grants/residencies and their current status here. I'm just getting my grant research work rolling for the year, but anything I list here is available to (at the very least) anyone in the United States unless I state otherwise. If anyone else runs into an opportunity (anywhere in the world, too!), please post it below so that I can update the thread.

    This is not a grant, but a class you can take online for free from the California College of the Arts (or you can pay for actual credit or to be graded). I enjoyed it, also had a good experience with the Kadenze help desk, so I think they have integrity there and I can recommend them.
