Silvers Grants for Work in Progress

Silvers Grants for Work in Progress

Anglophone writers of any nationality may apply for up to $10,000 to support long-form writing in the fields of literary criticism, arts writing, political analysis, and/or social reportage. Grants may not be used to fund translation.

Applicants must have an editorial agreement with a publication or publishing house for the work under consideration.

Applications must be submitted as a single PDF to, and should include:

  • A curriculum vitae

  • A one-page description of the project

  • Full responses to the financial questionnaire (download a copy of the form here)

  • A 500–2,000 word sample of the writer’s work.

    Your responses to the financial questionnaire should include all anticipated costs and should state other sources of funding, including book advances. Priority is given to projects that have not been supported by a significant advance.

    The writing sample can be from the writer’s work in progress or from a previously published essay, article, or book.

    In addition, please let us know where you heard about the Grants.
