Attention, writers in Washington State! "The Artist Trust/Washington State Arts Commission Fellowship awards $7,500 to practicing professional artists of exceptional talent and demonstrated ability. The Fellowship is a merit-based, not a project-based award. Fellowship recipients must present a Meet the Artist Event to a community that has little or no access to the artist and their work." Applications are currently open to literary artists. Deadline: June 12, 2009. No application fee indicated. More information here.
