Participation in literature is one of our main priorities. The Literature for Well-being Funding Scheme aims to inspire and empower some of the most marginalised and vulnerable individuals and communities through participation in literature activities. To read more about the activity delivered as part of this scheme in 2018, click here.
The 2019 Literature for Well-being Funding Scheme is now open for applications from writers and artists.
Deadline: 5.00 pm, Friday 12 July 2019
Who can apply?
Writers, artists, illustrators, film-makers, musicians and other arts practitioners based in or from Wales are welcome to apply. However, it is essential that literary activities are central to each workshop series. The Literature Wales Strategic Plan 2019-22 is available here. We recommend reading this in advance of sending your application.
When and where will the activity take place?
Successful applicants will be commissioned to deliver their workshop series between September 2019 and 31 March 2020. Exact dates will be agreed with successful applicants before the start of their workshop series.
Workshops can be delivered in any part of Wales. Due to the current gaps in where we fund activity, we particularly welcome applications for activity taking place in Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion, Flintshire, Monmouthshire, Powys and Wrexham.
