The Speculative Literature Foundation (SLF) is delighted to announce that its second annual Older Writers Grant is to be awarded to Douglas Smith. The $750 grant will be used to help Mr. Smith in his professional writing career. Honorable Mentions included Susanna Crowley, Rob Hunter, Roger Pepper, Kate Robinson, and Pam Summa. These writers will receive a one-year free membership to the Speculative Literature Foundation, which offers many helpful resources for speculative fiction writers.
The award is intended for writers of fifty years or older to assist such writers who are just starting to work at a professional level. The award was chosen by a jury consisting of M.J. Goodner, Sandra Kasturi, and Sheree Thomas of the SLF on the basis of interest and merit.
The 2005 Older Writers Grant was generously sponsored in its entirety by Centric Advertising (http://www.centric.com/).
