TJ is a writer living in Portland, OR.


I applied for my first artist grant.

The panel felt like they needed more material to be able to review your artistic quality. A number of them noted that your work had promise, but they did not feel that the opportunity you applied for was particularly unique, or what would help your practice.

And received my first artist grant rejection.

This is just a first step.
