The Literature Works Annual Fund offers a limited number of small grants each year for literature projects that take place in the South West.
Since 2013 our Annual Fund has funded 62 projects for organisations and individuals. We have funded literature activity in Devon, Cornwall, Dorset, Somerset, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Bristol, Bournemouth and Hampshire.
The Annual Fund widens access to literature and creative writing, particularly among people in our region who would otherwise miss out. We provide grants of up to £500 to organisations, which can help increase access to literature in local communities. Activities we have funded include small and start-up literature festivals, book projects for children and young adults, theatre writing events, cultural reading activities for vulnerable older people and their carers, community engagement projects and talking newspapers.
