This Goodly Land Receives $10K Podcasting Grant!
We have just gotten word that the "Support the Arts" Alabama license tag fund has awarded This Goodly Land a $10,000 grant. We will be using this money to create audio programs about special topics in Alabama literature and to distribute them free as podcasts.
The money in this fund comes from the extra that Alabama citizens pay to get "Support the Arts" license plates. Our thanks to all of you that have these plates on your cars. You're making it possible for us to produce programs that help learners of all ages find out more about our state and its rich literary heritage.
Please thank your Alabama legislators for this program, and tell them you're proud to live in a state that values the arts.
