I can officially add “grant writer” to my resume – over the weekend my client Simi Linton was advised by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council that she had been successful in her application for a grant from their Manhattan Cultural Fund. An application that I had been up to my kahunas in devising, budgeting and writing.
What a fantastic feeling to hear that news. In the scheme of arts funding, it’s small potatoes BUT one must start somewhere. The purpose of the grant money is to help produce a theatrical adaptation of Simi’s memoir, entitled My Body Politic: An Illustrated History. Look out Broadway!
