PO Box 1693
Dubuque, IA 52004-1693
For Immediate Release: July 7, 2014
The Speculative Literature Foundation is pleased to announce the application period for our Gulliver Travel Research Grant is now open.
Applications for the Gulliver Travel Research Grant will be accepted from July 1, 2014 until September 30, 2014. The winner for the grant is expected to be announced by November 15, 2014.
The Travel Grant is awarded annually to assist writers of speculative literature in the research of their fiction, poetry, drama or creative nonfiction work. At this time, the Travel Grant is not available for academic research.
Currently,  the Speculative Literature Foundation is offering one $800 travel grant. The grant can be used to cover airfare, lodging, and/or other travel expenses incurred during research.
The Travel Grant will be awarded by a committee of volunteer jurors on the basis of interest and merit. Factors jurors will consider include:
·         A one-page written description of the project in question, including details on the travel location and an estimated completion date (no more than 500 words)
·         A writing sample in the proposed genre–up to 10 pages of poetry, 10 pages of drama, or 5,000 words of fiction or creative nonfiction. Please note: the writing sample must be a solo work, completed only by the applicant.
·         A bibliography of previously-published work by the author (no more than one page, typed), though, applicants need not have previous publications to apply.

The Gulliver Travel Research Grant, as with all of our Speculative Literature Foundation grants, is intended to help writers working with speculative literature.
