Nonprofits interested in bringing an Indiana author to their community to speak to a public audience can apply for funds to cover speaking fees as part of Indiana Humanities’ Novel Conversations Speakers Program.
With support from The Glick Fund, a fund of the Central Indiana Community Foundation, we’ll send current and past recipients of the Eugene & Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Award to speak at 20 sites across the state.
Libraries, schools, museums/historical societies, community centers, art groups, prisons and other nonprofits are eligible to take part. If you’re interested, apply online using the link to the right. Applications must be submitted by October 13, 2017.
If we select you to take part, Indiana Humanities will assign you a speaker (you can list preferences on your application; participating authors are listed below), and we’ll pay the speaking fee. You’ll be responsible for contacting and scheduling the assigned speaker, paying any travel expenses (including mileage and hotel if needed), providing the venue and handling local publicity.
We’ll notify recipients in late October, and all author visits must be completed by June 30, 2018.
