Grants for Authors – Who are in Need

Unfortunately, there are fewer grants available for the authors who are in need. Authors do creative writing, but in order to sustain it, they have to publish their works and earn from it. This is where most authors fail. In addition to financial difficulties, there are also other factors in which authors become distressed and are unable to continue with their profession. There are lots of grants for authors in which foundations, organizations and institutions support their fellow authors to overcome tribulations and enable them to continue with his/her work.
