Self-publishing grants
Getting a self-published book on shelves costs money. (lecture image by razorconcept from

Self-publishing allows new and emerging writers to break into the publishing industry. Some self-published books have even become best sellers and been picked up by established publishers. Anyone can become a published author, but it takes money to successfully self-publish a book. The self-published writer must pay for printing, copyright, obtaining an ISBN number, as well as promotional and business costs. Fortunately, there are grants available from a variety of sources to help fund self-published projects.

Kickstarter Creative Funding

Kickstarter is an innovative new way to ask for funding for creative projects. Grantseekers can post a description of the project and ask for a specific amount of money to fund it. Interested donors may then offer funds. If the total amount asked for is reached by the project's deadline date, the grantseeker will receive the funds. If not, the grant request is cancelled and donors' credit cards are not charged.

There is no upper limit as to how much money writers can request for their projects. Those interested can register with the website and submit a paragraph detailing the scope of their project and fund request.
