Our members, who include many well-known writers, have established a grants program designed to support aspiring New Mexico authors in all their literary endeavors. The program is designed to reach all populations and geographic areas of the state, particularly those in lesser served communities. One of more grants will be awarded each year.

Who should apply: All New Mexico writers are welcome to apply. We encourage applicants working in a variety of genres, including fiction, non-fiction, poetry, journalism, playwriting and screenwriting.

How can the award be used: Recipients may use the grants to support their work as needed, including tuition for a writing-related program or mentorship, travel, research costs, special equipment, or time to work on a project without a day job.

Watch for information on how to apply in 2019 coming soon.

New Grant Program Coming

A new grant program will begin taking applications this year. Details will be announced at the dinner on March 28.
