Money For Writing - Contests, Grants & Publications

Who doesn't want to incorporate writing into an ESL or TESOL classroom? But what about making some money as you...

... develop writing skills?

If you work with school age kids (from elementary school to college age) in any writing capacity, be sure to look here http://www.fundsforwriters.com/writingkid.htm for a variety of opportunities for kids.

And who even thinks of writing contests? But I would advise you to think again. Know anyone whose dream is to be a published poet, screenwriter or novelist? Contests are a great place to start. There are even contests for the best translations for both long and short works. Wouldn't that be a great project for an ESL class!

You can get on the email list and get far more information on writing contests here http://www.fundsforwriters.com/contests.htm.

Here is a great collection of writing related print resources http://www.fundsforwriters.com/Resources.htm. And, if you can't find what you are looking for, be sure to use the Amazon search box at the bottom of the screen.

If you or anyone you work with might be looking for financial support for an extended writing project, take a look here http://www.fundsforwriters.com/grants.htm for regional or special interest writing opportunities.

And yes, there has to be a writer focused Twitter feed. You can see it and join it here http://twitter.com/hopeclark.

Send us any links or other resources that you think any teachers, students or even just regular people might find interesting or useful. Let us all know about words that make you crazy, aspects of language and expression you find challenging, and be sure to let us know what it is about English and language learning that you find confounding, infuriating or endlessly intriguing.

Listen, read and speak. Make your new language your own.

My best to you as you make your way through this intriguing , constantly shifting linguistic landscape.
