Chat with C. Hope Clark

C. Hope Clark (Hope) founded and serves as editor of, a well-known writer’s reference that reaches 20,000 readers weekly with grants, markets and motivational editorials that generate stacks of thank-you notes from readers. Writer’s Digest voted FundsforWriters one of its 101 Best Web Sites for Writers for the past nine years.

Hope’s dozen ebooks are rapid sellers ranging from “Grants for the Serious Writer” to “Short & Sweet; Markets for Fillers.” Hope has published in magazines like Writer’s Digest, The Writer Magazine, ByLine Magazine, Next Step Magazine, College Bound Teen, TURF Magazine, and Landscape Management. “The Shy Writer” is a nonfiction paperback she penned to aid writers like her who have difficulty appearing in public. Published in 2004, it continues to readily sell and was re-released as a second edition in Fall 2007.

After 25 years as a manager with the federal sector, she requested an early retirement in her forties to write full time and manage FundsforWriters, marrying her knowledge of grants and her love of writing.

She lives in Chapin, South Carolina on the banks of Lake Murray and has completed a novel, the first of an agricultural mystery series, which is currently being read by several agents. She is married to a recently retired federal agent who inspires her love of mystery writing.
