Welcome to Finley Experience

This website is dedicated to LGBT folks who are surviving in this crazy world.

What's good for one isn't necessarily good for another.

Attempting to control the hearts and souls of the masses through force and injustice only forces the seeds of dissension to grow. History has taught this lesson repeatedly. Perhaps, we'll learn the lesson this time.

A Room of Her Own Foundation latest deadlines approach!

A recent email received from A Room of Her Own Foundation.

This group was offering a $50,000 grant to women writers. They announced earlier this year they no longer were able to support the $50,000 grant. They also announced they would continue with the smaller competitive awards. There is always an application fee, so be forewarned. I don't trust contests with high fees, their fees are what I consider standard. I know there are major publishing companies that run fee-based contests, even those feel like scams. I have no idea if they have reinstated the $50,000 grant for 2011. It's too bad, too, women writer's have very few grants available. Feel like singing?

"Another one's gone. Another one's gone. Another one bites the dust." (I can't remember who wrote that song. Any ideas?
