Attention, all artists applying for Recommender Grants for Writers through the Ontario Arts Council (OAC)!
Applications for this third-party recommender program are now submitted using Nova, OAC’s online application system. Three other third-party recommender programs – Exhibition Assistance, Indigenous Visual Artists’ Materials and Recommender Grants for Theatre Creators – moved online earlier this summer.
This program provides grants of $1,500 to $5,000 to Ontario-based writers to assist in the creation of new works.
Recommender Grants for Writers is a third-party recommender program. This means that when you’re applying, you select one of the literary/publishing organizations OAC has designated as a “recommender organization” to assess your application. Recommender organizations then submit their grant selections to OAC.
