We have selected to feature the AROHO Freedom Award because of its interest in women artists special projects, as well as its hefty prize of a $50,000 grant.
AROHO $50,000 Gift of Freedom Award
A Room of Her Own Foundation (AROHO) will award the $50,000 Gift of Freedom for an “imagined yet unrealized poetry, fiction, or nonfiction project.” It is the mission of AROHO to assist women artists in the privacy and financial means necessary for the creation of their art.
One genre finalist will be awarded the $50,000 Gift of Freedom grant. A finalist from each remaining genre will receive a $5,000 prize and be eligible to attend a future AROHO Retreat for Women Writers.
There is a $35 entry fee. All submissions are due November 2, 2015.
The following is from the AROHO Foundation website:
