Lucidea Press Announces New Book: A Survivor’s Guide to Museum Grant Writing


VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Lucidea has announced that museum expert Rachael Cristine Woody’s new book, A Survivor’s Guide to Museum Grant Writing, is now available. The latest publication from Lucidea Press offers pragmatic advice from Ms. Woody, a seasoned museum expert and consultant specializing in grant acquisition, with significant experience as both a practitioner and advisor.

This book is for anyone who wants to delve into the grant acquisition process and confidently apply for grant funding. It takes a pragmatic approach to such topics as seeing each grant application as an opportunity, learning and moving on from inevitable failures, using grant acquisition to provide valuable financial sustenance to the museum without negatively impacting staff, and applying a systematic, common sense approach that builds the necessary skills to survive the grant writing process and thrive within it.

Rachael is the owner of Rachael Cristine Consulting, and provides services to museums, libraries, and archives. She specializes in grant acquisition for museums, history, and heritage organizations and is the creator of Zero to Winning with Grants!, a workshop that tours nationally. She is also a popular guest author for Lucidea’s Think Clearly Blog.

Says Ron Aspe, Lucidea’s CEO, “We’re excited to bring you the next book under our Lucidea Press imprint; we believe it’s an essential resource for museum professionals wanting to learn and attempt grant writing, with practical guidance drawn from Rachael’s career in museums and as a consultant, innovator, and advocate.”
