We nurture and support literature throughout the region. That’s why we’re pleased to announce that our bookable online one-to-one advice surgeries with the Literature Works team are back on alternate Monday afternoons in June.

During these sessions, we will contribute advice and guidance on your literature project or idea.

These sessions are offered free of charge.

Taking place on alternate Mondays (7th and 21st June), there are two afternoon slots available per day. These can be booked on a first-come, first-served basis:

12 pm – 1 pm

2 pm – 3 pm

The sessions will focus on these main areas:
Funding – finding potential sources and making a convincing case
Networks – connecting you to helpful people and projects
Project management – such as setting budgets, planning and governance
Evaluation, metrics and impact – the basic principles, dos and don’ts
Audience development – making and executing a plan
Social media and website advice

We ask that once you have secured your place using the ‘book now’ button, you email info@literatureworks.org.uk no later than one week before your session to provide us with a short summary of your project or idea (maximum 50 words) and indicate which two of the above six areas you are particularly interested in focusing on. We will do our best to talk across the range of focuses you select and will allocate a member of our team to run your session based on availability and skill set.

You will then be emailed an online meeting invitation.

Please note, if we do not hear from you one week prior to your session, regrettably we will need to move your session to later in the year. This is because we need time to prepare and to allocate staff time to these sessions, which are very popular.
