    Recently I have tried to access the website for the Older Writers’ Grant, but the site seems to be down. Does speculativeliterature.org still exist, to your knowledge?

    Hank,
    Their website was current when I posted this, and there are various links to current grants they are running throughout the web.

    However, their website seems to be out-of-order at the moment.

    So, yes, I’m pretty sure they still exist as they have posted content in 2011.
