Writing to Win Federal Grants
Fri, 24 Oct 2014 11:00:00 +0000
This presentation will help experienced grants professionals overcome fears and misunderstandings about applying their skills to federal and state grant proposals. For those new to federal grants, Cheryl Kester will discuss organizational readiness and the components of a typical federal RFA. The remainder of the session will discuss how certain parts of government proposals often differ significantly from their foundation counterparts: heavy use of data and layering of problems in the need section, the level of detail expected in the project description, and the types of evaluation plans reviewers prefer to see. After her presentation, Cheryl will be happy to sign copies of her book, which will be available for purchase.
Cheryl L. Kester is Principal of The Kester Group, a full-service grants consulting firm that serves education, non-profit, public-safety, health care and county/municipal clients across the nation in obtaining foundation, state and federal grants. In the last 14 years, she has helped secure more than $95.1 million in funding. An engaging speaker, she leads workshops on grant seeking and post-award management, addresses large groups, conducts board workshops, and serves as a grant reviewer for private and federal funders. She will also be presenting tips on winning federal grants that are detailed in her new book, Writing to Win Federal Grants, coauthored with Karen Cassidy and published by CharityChannel Press.
This event is a partnership between the Fayetteville Public Library's Nonprofit Resource Center and the Arkansas Chapter of Grant Professionals Association. GPA provides local professional development and networking opportunities for grant professionals throughout Arkansas.

Ozark Writers Live! : The Sci-fi Horror of a Cowboy that Murdered the Reader: Panel Discussion in Genres
Sat, 04 Oct 2014 10:00:00 +0000
Western author Pamela Foster, mystery writer Susan Holmes, and sci-fi horror aficionado Brad Carter discuss what is unique about their chosen genres and how to craft tales that cross boundaries. Each will offer personal tips for novice and seasoned writers.
Brad Carter Bio
Brad Carter is a product of the public school system in Arkansas, but he hopes you will not hold that against him. He currently lives in Northwest Arkansas, where his wife and daughter barely tolerate his behavior. He uses an Ouija board nightly.
Brad’s 2012 debut novel The Big Man of Barlow has been optioned for a motion picture. Publisher’s Weekly called his novel (dis)Comfort Food “…an unsettling story where familiar ingredients bring unexpected results.” His latest novel is Saturday Night of the Living Dead.
Pamela Foster’s first two books, Redneck Goddess and Bigfoot Blues were contemporary novels. The author went on to write My Life with a Wounded Warrior, a collection of essays about living with her Vietnam Veteran husband. Next came Clueless Gringos in Paradise, the hilarious story of Foster and her husband strapping two 150 pound post-traumatic stress service dogs to their wrists and moving to the country of Panama.
But when a grim-faced civil war veteran sat a bay mare and refused to leave her imagination, Foster ignored the writing prompt for almost a year.
“I don’t write westerns,” she told the image.
The cowboy refused to leave and two years later, Ridgeline, Foster’s first western was published. The author is currently writing the second in what has become her western series, The Long Journey Home. Which just goes to prove that cowboys are difficult to ignore.
Susan Holmes penned her first story at age four. Despite the brevity (three pages of crayoned text) and the title ("Three Bears Visit New York City") her father gave it the same careful consideration he gave to C. F. Forester's Horatio Hornblower series. When he finished the story he announced, "You are going to be a writer."
Today, a professional writer, editor, college professor, and consultant, her work appears in peer-reviewed journal and military publications, as well as print and digital media. The author and editor of two non-fiction books, she explores the world of dogs through her website http://dogmysteries.com and writes regional mysteries set in a boarding kennel.
Her third book, Deadly Ties, the first in the Waterside Kennels mystery series, was inspired by 18 years of adventure with her beloved spaniel Alix. She's joined Search and Rescue exercises, ventured through caves, forests and fields, and into dog parks, vet clinics, and kennels. She’s worked with dog trainers, kennel owners, and veterinarians to create an environment dog lovers recognize and appreciate.
