Florida: Free Money for Artists (2005)


Published on

This is a (2005) slideshow I did to share with artists and writers ways to find money and resources to do their work. I placed it here as I would like to update it and I'm taking down the website it was housed on at this time. RhondaK is a native Florida Folk Artist and a Librarian. http://www.rhondakwrites.com
