This year Louisville is hosting the 30th Annual Southern Fried Poetry Slam. Thanks to Mr. SpreadLove and Stevon I am hosting a workshop for writers & artists at KMAC (715 W Main St, Louisville, KY 40202).
One part of the workshop deals with writing proposals. You can visit my LINKTREE for the full presentation (free for a limited time) and I included proposal tips below:
CHAHTA NOIR GRANT TEMPLATE
1. PROJECT DESCRIPTION
3. WORK SAMPLE(s)
Have a recording with excellent audio ready to submit–preferably in front of a live audience. You can also have a link to an article about your work or a PDF of your published work. Just be sure to follow whatever guidelines they provide.
What stands out about you? Describe your writing/performance style here. Is there a major obstacle you overcame to be here today? What are your core values? This is the time to demonstrate your potential based on your unique experiences.
EXAMPLE: Shauntrice is a mother, abolitionist, and artist. Her bold work explores identity, antiquity, and joy through mixed media. She created Chahta Noir as a resource for artists to network and develop their skills. Her work has been featured at the Speed Art Museum, Roots 101 African American Museum, Kennedy Center, Kentucky Center for African American Heritage, Auburn Avenue Research Library on African American Culture & History. Her upcoming shows include the Carnegie Center for Art & History and the 1619 Gathering Place.
