Literature Works Annual
Fund open for
applications 2018

The health and social benefits of engaging with reading and creative writing are proven. For some, access to literature is obvious and easy; for others the benefit remains harder to reach, behind barriers of low income, language, location and social disadvantage.

Literature Works fund-raises for and delivers the Annual Fund, a small grants scheme which aims to identify and support opportunities to develop reading and writing activity in the South West of England. Find out more about previously funded activities here.

The Fund offers awards of between £100-£500 designed to help communities to get involved in reading and writing and to celebrate writing talent in the South West, particularly in areas where funds might be otherwise hard to find.

They want people of all ages to have the best artistic experiences they can have in order to develop their abilities in all aspects of their lives.

Please note: They welcome all applications which meet our criteria, but please note that for the application period January-December 2018 the Trustees of Literature Works will prioritise applications that benefit children and young people up to the age of 18 years.
