Feb 24 – Literacy Bridge Org.
Feb 26 - Books All Around literacy for youth.

To access any of these archived or upcoming interviews simply click on the link located on the right for the Conscious Discussions talk radio show.

...& in keeping with this week of celebrations for literacy I'd like to share this quote with you from one of the interviews that aired on our Conscious Discussions talk radio show:

-- Quote of the Day --

“…People don’t realize there are grants out there for writers. …There are grants ranging from state fellowship – and every state has them and those are general fellowships based on your submission, publication history or application … Then you’ve got retreats – most retreats that you see have a scholarship or fellowship program. You can get away from a few days to a year and they are everywhere, from the state, to France… to Porto Rico… …and then there are conferences and a good many of them have fellowship or scholarship programs available. If you want to go to a retreat or a conference, pick up the phone and ask if they have any kind of financial assistance…”
