There is a 1 hour downloadable transcript of Gigi Rosenberg discussing art grant writing online for $16 through her site.

I agree with Kayjuni's comments about the book. A good introduction to getting a grant.

I can't recommend this book enough to any artist/writer/musician/performer trying to make a living off their work. After checking this out from the library I bought my own copy which is now full of underlined paragraphs and post-it notes. The author includes resources to help you find grants to apply for, but more importantly helps you to focus on how to communicate the importance of your work to panels of judges. If every art school taught a course based on this book, "starving artists" would be a thing of the past.
