Guidelines of assistance

The Older Writers Grant is awarded annually to a writer who is 50 years of age or older at the time of the grant application and is intended to assist such writers who are just starting to work at a professional level.


The Speculative Literature Foundation (SLF) aims to promote literary quality in speculative fiction by encouraging new writers, assisting established writers, and numerous other activities. SLF offers four grants: the Older Writers Grant, the Travel Grant, the Working Class Writers Grant, and the Diversity Grant. The website also offers a host of resources and information.
