What I appreciated most about this book is that it is about so much more than grant writing! It is an energizing invitation for artists to advocate for one’s self and work. GiGi Rosenberg takes apart the whole process of conceptualizing creative projects and re-framing the details---not just to attract funders, but, also, to help the artist to stop walking around with nebulous aspirations that never grows legs or wings.
While there is plenty of singular work to be done, Rosenberg encourages the

Great read to get introduced to the daunting world of grant writing. I'm looking forward to trying out some of Rosenberg's tips this year (she has supplied many ideas to kick-start your brainstorming) as I apply for my first grants and try-out different fundraising projects for a future 2016 recital tour that I will be planning with the help of my composer friends. The appendices are filled with additional resources from where to find grant money to other books and websites about the artist/gran ...more

This book gives practical advice for applying for grants. It also left me inspired to fight for art.

A really great resource that transcends the basic "how to" on writing grant proposals to encompass wise advice on staying motivated as you advocate for the value of your work. Chapter 5's step by step guide to the proposal writing process has great tips on writing and kicking procrastination that you can keep in your back pocket even when not applying for grants. My favorite feature, however, is the wonderful annotated appendices that not only list several books and websites to guide you through ...more

This book has great instructions, tips and resources for generating the kinds of material you need not just for grants, but for any promotion and advancement of your work. Best of all, among all the instructional material are lots of encouraging words.

Grant writing needn't be a chore, as Gigi Rosenberg proves with this book. The anecdotes and exercises that she includes are designed to tap into the natural creativity of artists, thus allowing them to gain the perspective necessary to define the value of their work and convey that to funders. Even dryer subjects like budgets spring to life under Rosenberg's warm, witty gaze. This book is a must-read for artists, grant writers, and funders.

This book is fantastic -- not just for all of the grant-writing advice (which is in itself invaluable) but also because it really made me look at and think about my art and writing as a career in which to formulate plans and goals, and gives practical, useful advice on how to go about doing that. This is definitely a book that's going to live on my desk for awhile while I try to absorb all the passages I've highlighted.

Useful, friendly advice on all details of grant applications for artists of all types. Rosenberg makes a boring subject readable, and throws in lots of resources for even more info.

A great introduction to grant writing. I have a feeling that I will be sharing this book with friends and inciting arguments with my tech writing teacher. It was refreshing to see Mary Syzbist along with several other Oregon writers quoted in Rosenberg's book.

I started knowing nothing about how to apply for an artist grant and now I know quite a bit more. At the very least I won't feel quite a foolish when I apply for my first grant. A good book for someone who is starting from scratch.
