The 2023 Lin Halterman Memorial Grant is currently OPEN for applications!
The Lin Halterman Memorial Grant is awarded in memory of Linda L. Halterman, a charter member and the second secretary of the Alaska Writers Guild. An indefatigable worker, she plowed into projects with a focus that was never diverted. Her work continued until one summer day in 2009, when she was diagnosed with cancer and given six months to live. She finished her family legacy, Journey of a Lifetime, and fought the issue of cancer with as much determination as she mustered in her other pursuits. In her memory, Alaska Writers Guild raises funds through an annual silent auction to provide grants to assist authors in pursuing their writing goals.
The 2023 Lin Halterman Grant will provide two monetary awards of $500 each.
