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.

The Annual Fund offer small grants to South West based organisations in need of financial support to produce literature activity. For inspiration and ideas, read testimonials from previously successful applicants.

The Annual Fund is about more than just awarding grants, our aim is to help new projects get off the ground. We will be working closely with the projects we select to offer them opportunities, connect them with networks that can help them develop and mentor them to support the development of their work.
