As you will know, the only reason I was able to attend AussieCon 4 is because I was able to secure a Career Development Grant from Arts Queensland.
If you're interested in applying for this grant (or similar grants) my first recommendation would be to keep your eyes peeled for the next grants seminar by the Queensland Writers Centre.
I'm also happy to answer any questions people might have about the process. If I can help, I will. Leave a comment or tweet me.
