Wigs in France, grants for writers, and fun footnotes

It's been a bit since Writer Abroad posted a few links to some things she likes (but not "like" in the Facebook sense...that she much so that she no longer has likes and interests--at least on Certain Internet Sites).

Oh well.

Here we go:

Fantastic essay about getting a wig in France from writer Suzanne White in The New York Times Magazine.

Speaking of France, A Year in the Merde author Stephen Clarke has a new book, 1000 Years of Annoying the French.

Great essay in Brevity by Lisa Gill on the craft of writing, fun footnotes included.

If you're a writer and don't yet know about Mira's list, be sure to check out her post on "Big Fellowships and Grants for Writers". Yes, money for writers. You heard me right. Money, writers, in the same sentence. Yes.

And finally, this list wouldn't be complete without a little shameless self-promotion. Last week, Writer Abroad was featured over on in the article, "Have Resume, Will Travel," by Michelle Goodman. And yes, Europe really does teach you how to relax.

Coming up later this week on Writer Abroad:

Wednesday: Author Philip Graham reflects on traveling (and writing) with children.

Friday: The authors of the newly released travel memoir, The Lost Girls, share their wisdom on writing, publishing, and traveling the world.

  5. Most grants are made to fund a specific project and require some level of compliance and reporting. The grant writing process involves an applicant submitting a proposal to a potential funder, either on the applicant's own initiative or in response to a Request for Proposal from the funder. Other grants can be given to individuals, such as victims of natural disasters or individuals who seek to open a small business. Thanks.

  6. Most often, education grants are issued by the government to students attending post-secondary education institutions. In certain cases, a part of a government loan is issued as a grant, particularly pertaining to promising students seeking financial support for continuing their educations. Thanks.
