Click here to download a free guide for writers applying to the Canada Council for the Arts for funds to cover the creation of a book-length work. This is a walk-through geared toward first-time applicants or anyone who found the website difficult to navigate. I hope making this available will ease the application process and encourage writers to apply. This guide was not written in conjunction with the Canada Council; it's just friendly, writer-to-writer advice. If you have any questions or comments related to the guide, write to: info [at] michaelmelgaard [dot] com.
NOTE: This guide is not advice on how to win the grant. The writing of the grant is entirely up to you; this guide is only intended to get you through registering and applying.
