Here at Literature Works one of our key aims is to support and broaden access to the wide range of literature activity happening across the South West.

Whether you’re running a literature festival, working on a book project, part of a theatre group or looking to start a new literature venture; if it benefits your local community you could be eligible to apply for funding support. Take a look here to see some of the projects we’ve funded in the past.

We strongly believe that reading and writing for pleasure can positively impact on overall well-being and so, whilst the Annual Fund in 2019 is open to any literature project in the region which meets our eligibility criteria, we are particularly interested in projects which promote well-being. The Annual Fund offer small grants to South West based organisations in need of financial support to produce literature activity.
