Two Prizes for NYC Area Writers

The Brooklyn Film & Arts Festival will award the Brooklyn Nonfiction Prize to a work of creative nonfiction that is set in Brooklyn, New York, and renders the borough's "rich soul and intangible qualities through the writer's actual experiences." The award, given annually, consists of a prize of $500, publication on the Brooklyn Film & Arts Festival website, and a reading at St. Francis College in Brooklyn. Submit by November 15.
The Kinereth Gensler Awards, given annually by Alice James Books, will go to a poet living in New England, New York State, or New Jersey. The prize includes $2,000 and publication by Alice James Books. Submit by October 1.

Survived Sandy but Still Struggling? 

New York Foundation for the Arts continues to offer support to artists impacted by Superstorm Sandy. Eligible artists can be working in any discipline, but must reside in one of the five boroughs of New York City and meet a maximum income threshold. If you are an artist who is still suffering the impact of Hurricane Sandy, you can find complete guidelines and answers to Frequently Asked Questions at relieffund.nyfa.org. Funds are limited, so artists are urged to apply by September 15th for priority review.
