There are government grant programs that may be of use to people with writing related jobs. These may include authors, editors, or publishes, made available at the national level and state levels depending on the time of year and list of grants available currently. If you are an author who needs money to help you get published or money to use while you are working on a piece it may be worth it to consider the grant funding available for your needs. Writing is a good small business. However, can be financially challenging due to the inconsistent payment schedule. A grant can help you have money to use while working on a book or article so you can take your time and dedicate yourself to your project.
