If you’re like me, you may be wondering how to create art and make a living. At least, I’ve been mulling that over quite a bit. Now that I’ve graduated, how do I create a sustainable writing practice? Well, there is good news if you’re willing to put in a little work. There are fellowships, residencies, and funding available for writers. Here are resources that I use on a daily basis that I love. They have tons of opportunities, so check them out. If you know of any other resources, shoot me an email and I’ll add them to the list!
