What Past Participants Are Saying
"I appreciated Ethan’s emphasis on [the question], ‘Why you, why now?’ when applying for grants. It was good to hear Ethan’s insider view as a panel member." –Participant, 2012
"My career has taken off since taking Ethan’s workshop–I cut back my hours (I was a high school English teacher), then took a sabbatical from my job at the end of the school year (thanks to an NEA fellowship) and have been taking advantage of opportunities to publish more than I ever have in the past. This webinar will definitely empower even more artists to make smart career choices." –Participant, 2015
"Ethan is very knowledgeable and gave a very good presentation. For me personally, I found his discussion of the budget and the project description most helpful. Ethan’s presentation gave me direction in how to best present those particular items to a panel." –Participant, 2014
Deadline: July 31, 2016
The Instituto Sacatar provides unstructured time and an appropriate space for writers to develop new work. The Instituto will work with each artist individually to help them engage, as desired, with the local culture in ways appropriate for that artist. Towards the end of each residency period, artists often present work they have completed during their residency, actively engaging local collaborators and audiences.
The program, located on the shores of the largest lake in Mexico, provides free housing and food for one writer and one emerging artist for one month. National and international visual artists, photographers, writers, playwrights, new media makers and musicians over the age of 23 are welcome to apply.
