Your request is granted

According to this post on Careers that Don't Suck, grantwriting is sexy again. This means a few things:
  • If you're a good writer, you can look for grantwriting opportunities;
  • There are probably volunteer opportunities if you are not sure if you are a good writer, or a good grant writer;
  • Libraries are still looking for librarians who can write grant applications and requests, if not more so in the current economic climate. 
If you have no experience in this area, and are still in school, look for opportunities that will let you get some grantwriting experience. You will probably always need it in public service/non-profit.

There are also some links at the bottom to job boards and free classes on how to write grant applications.
