I should probably post this in the Comic News Forums-I'll probably get better responses there.
You mean here on this site? You can't post there, mods move threads there if they are, in fact, news. So I don't think you'll have much luck there.
Honestly I dont think there are many Grants in the industry. Its much different than the publishing world, where writers can get grants from various places and get money to do their research. Unless you can tell me of any that you've run into, I don't think they exist if you're not an established writer. They'll pay warren ellis to develop an idea, but as a newcomer without previous experience I don't think you'll find much out there.
If you find something, let me know. I would LOVE there to be grants out there when I start playing the field.
Do you know of any grants for writers I should look into?
