Hello there! I recently came across a grant for writers that I thought you might like to pass along to your web viewers.
The Hobson Foundation is offering a $500 Dream Grant for writers. Deadline is 6/01/5.

Jen, I forwarded this entry to Dave Winer over at Scripting News, because he's into podcasting and the fact that podcasts are eligible seems pretty cool with me. He blogged it the other day.

Cyndy, that grant sounds pretty cool, until I read that every entry must be accompanied by a "small processing fee of $15". Yikes! There goes Yog's Law* again!

(*Yog's Law: Money always flows TO the writer.)
