Don't miss this chance to apply to host a free poetry writing workshop with amazing Indiana Poets.

The Indiana Arts Commission has partnered with Indiana Humanities to cover the cost of several writing workshops with some of the best poets in our state. Nonprofits and schools are eligible to apply to host a workshop

There is a quick timeline for this opportunity, but it is worth it! Submit a short application by September 16th for the chance to bring a free writing workshop to your community.  

These interactive workshops engage a variety of audiences and cover several genres. Nonprofits interested in bringing an Indiana writer to their community to provide a one-time writing workshop for a public audience can apply for funds to cover the writer’s fee as part of the new Indiana Authors Awards writing workshop program. Check out the catalog of available writers and poets.
