Attention, New York Writers!
The Constance Saltonstall Foundation for the Arts offers both summer fellowships (one-month residencies at the Saltonstall Arts Colony open to all New York State artists and writers over 21 years of age–categories include poetry; fiction and creative nonfiction; photography; and painting, sculpture, and other visual arts) and individual artist grants ($5,000 grants open to writers and visual artists living in specified New York State central and western counties). For 2006, individual artist grant categories include works on paper; photography; poetry; and creative nonfiction. The application deadline for both programs is January 15, 2006.
