Up to six of Los Angeles' midsize arts groups will be selected next month for the Arts Organization Stabilization Initiative, a new grants program operated by the city's Cultural Affairs Department and the county's Music and Performing Arts Commission. The pilot program, in the planning stages for nearly a year, will offer a one-time, five-year grant to groups with budgets of $100,000-$800,000 who present multicultural, avant-garde or culturally specific work (from underserved communities).

At the first Santa Monica College Writers' Conference in 1987, Jim Krusoe, one of the co-founders of the fiction workshop, watched uncomfortably as author Ann Beattie reduced a young student to tears by harshly criticizing her manuscript. "Ann was real cruel, I think, about this woman's writing," said Krusoe, a creative-writing instructor at the college for more than 11 years.

Eleven in the morning and Chatterton's Book Store is packed. Outside, it's metallic and smoggy, Vermont Avenue on a Saturday morning the way it's been for 30, 40 years. The Dresden Room, where stand-up drinkers ingest the brown stuff for hours on end. Sarno's, where the proprietor got shot a while ago. Down a little farther, the College Grill, which sells balanced meals to thrifty students from LACC. Street Corner College We stand now and laugh Watching the girls go by.
