Try To Be Better is a multidisciplinary project foregrounding experiment and collaboration in new art and poetry. Inspired by the poet W. S. Graham in his centenary year, the project included publishing an anthology of writing. Try to be better received a grant to run a workshop in Helston Community College.
Speaking of the impact of the grant on the project, Lavinia Singer of Try to be Better said:
“We are so grateful to have received a grant from the Literature Works Annual Fund for our Try To Be Better project: it enabled us to fulfil our aim of bringing together artist and reader, the creative and educational, in a series of stimulating workshop settings. It’s wonderful to know we can support our artists and writers, while also celebrating the work of W. S. Graham more widely. Thank you!”
