Mini-Grants Available for Events in Detroit via Poets & Writer @poetswritersinc

Mini-Grants Available
for Events in Detroit 
Wednesday, February 16, 2022

Dear Writers and Literary Event Organizers of Detroit,

We send our wishes for a healthy and inspired New Year!

We are reaching out to let you know that our program has mini-grants available to support events in Detroit, and to encourage you to apply:

  • If you're a literary event organizer: consider applying for a mini-grant to pay a writer to give a reading or conduct a writing workshop for your community. For those unfamiliar with our process, or who haven't applied in a while, we are now offering a handy Applicant Toolkit, which provides guidance and basic tips for a successful application.

  • If you're a writer: initiate the process by contacting your favorite literary venue and let them know mini-grants are available to support your reading or writing workshop. Break the ice using one of the suggested e-mails from our Template for Writers, which will help you introduce our program to a sponsoring organization.

We are funding both virtual and in-person events, and recommend in-person gatherings follow your city or state's COVID-19 safety measures.

Do you have an event planned but are not sure if you have time to apply? Not to worry: we are reducing the rolling submission deadline for applications from Detroit to 4 weeks in advance of the event date for the remainder of our fiscal year, which ends June 30. If your event is taking place sooner than 4 weeks, please reach out to see how we can help!

If you have any other questions or concerns, check our Frequently Asked Questions page, our Guidelines, or connect with us directly by emailing

We value the literary community in Detroit and look forward to supporting your events!

With kind regards,

Bonnie Rose Marcus
Director, Readings & Workshops (East)
