>Dear CLC member,
>Have you considered that there is money 
>available to you, as a composer, which you are 
>unaware of? Are you confident in your ability to 
>write an effective grant or foundation 
>The Canadian League of Composers has undertaken 
>a new initiative to bring professional 
>development workshops to composers and you are 
>invited! The workshops are open to both emerging 
>and established composers who are looking to 
>advance their skills in a variety of fields. The 
>first workshop, Grant Writing for the 
>Professional Composer, is to be held Saturday 
>June 16th at 1:30 pm at the Canadian Music 
>Centre BC Regional office in Vancouver. Michael 
>Jones, one of the best arts administrators in 
>the country, will lead the workshop. The CLC is 
>offering this workshop with the assistance of 
>the Creators' Assistance Program of Heritage 
>Canada, as administered by the SOCAN Foundation.
>This session, planned as an interactive workshop 
>with examples and opportunities for input from 
>workshop participants, will focus on common 
>procedures and challenges of writing 
>applications to both private and public sector 
>funders. Topics covered will include locating 
>possible sources of money, creating partnerships 
>with organizations, preparing application 
>materials, and avoiding common application 
>pitfalls (or pratfalls). You are encouraged to 
>bring in any grant, foundation or residency 
>application that you are working on to gain 
>valuable advice on how to improve its impact.
