How to apply
The Literature Works Annual Fund is usually open for two rounds each year. Please note that we cannot offer funding outside of the application windows, so do plan ahead to avoid disappointment. We do not offer retrospective funding, so please only apply for activities that take place after the funding deadline.
We welcome all applications, however, we are particularly interested in applications with a focus on ‘the outdoors’ for 2021.
The Annual Fund is now closed for 2021. We will announce dates for 2022 soon.
Funding is available to groups, companies and not-for-profit organisations based in the South West of England to develop literature activity, provided your activity is carried out on a not-for-profit basis. You do not need to be a registered charity to apply. A panel comprised of Literature Works’ staff and trustees assess all applications.
We are looking for high quality new ideas and projects benefitting people where funding is otherwise hard to find. We are less likely to fund a well-established activity that is already significantly funded or has a long track record of major funding.
