Grants ranging from $500 to $2,500 to USA nonprofit organizations and government agencies in eligible southern states to host presentations by out-of-state writers. Eligible states include Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. Funding will support literary projects that contain a public reading as well as an educational component such as a writing workshop.
The Literary Arts Touring grant program offers presenting organizations the opportunity to receive financial support to engage Southern writers (fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry) who reside outside of the presenter’s state. Support is awarded to literary projects that contain both a public reading and an educational component such as a writing workshop. The project can include a single engagement by a writer or multiple writers involved in an event (for example, writers series or festivals). Unless there are special circumstances, projects should take place in the presenter’s state.
Eligible projects must include the engagement of an artist or company that resides in South Arts’ region, excluding the applicant’s state. Please note the following exemption for touring within state boundaries: In-state touring is allowed for Southern artists residing at least 400 miles away from the applicant’s location.
Readings at conferences and school-focused readings (primarily engaging students, whether taking place at the school or a venue) will not be considered open and accessible to the general public; however, school-focused readings will satisfy the educational component requirement. For the public reading, a minimum of 30 minutes of presentation (reading and lecture) is required.
Events must be open and marketed to the public and dedicated to serving a wide audience. Projects are not required to serve the entire geographic community but should have targeted participants.
The educational/outreach component is an integral part of the engagement and should be carefully planned. A meaningful educational component should involve concentrated preparation by the writer(s) and presenter, and include a learning event that has a lasting impact upon the audience (e.g., workshops, lectures and master classes). The writer(s) must conduct the educational activity. Please be aware that failure to include an educational/outreach component will result in ineligibility.
