Proposals and grants require a clear vision, accurate data and facts, concise writing and an ability to follow application instructions precisely.
When the Town of Bel Air applied to the Maryland State Arts Council to become the state’s 19th Arts & Entertainment District, they turned to The Writing Studio to research and write the proposal. The town was awarded the designation on the first application.
The Writing Studio also recently helped the MA & PA Trail and secure a grant to refurbish the Tollgate Arch, which had become faded and broken since its installation 20 year ago.

For a small town, Bel Air, Maryland possesses a rich history of remarkable artists, athletes, politicians, military leaders, heroes, entrepreneurs and generally colorful characters. Legendary Locals of Bel Air (Arcadia Publishing) authors Carol Deibel and Kathi Santora introduce readers to the faces and stories of many of these memorable individuals.
Notable residents and workers from Bel Air span the centuries from Wiliam Paca, a signer of the Declaration of Independence and Maryland Civil War Governor Augustus Bradford to present day legends such as WLIF radio personality Diane Lyn, internationally recognized artist Jim Butcher, Baltimore Blast defender Pat Healey and Kimmie Meissner, the youngest member of the 2006 U.S. Olympic team.
Legendary Locals of Bel Air contains nine chapters of historic and current photographs that highlight people who were farmers, pioneers, artists, politicians, career military and sports figures.
There are accounts of bravery, such as when volunteer firefighter Walt Holloway entered a burning Main Street apartment to save a 69-year-old woman. HannahMoore, an African American woman who was a business owner and land owner in the 1930s, donated property and funds to build a school to ensure that children received a quality education. The restored building still stands today.
Legendary Locals of Bel Air is a tribute to the diverse people who came together to build the Town of Bel Air over many generations.
