Literature Wales’ Writer Commissions #3

In January 2021, Literature Wales, in partnership with the Royal College of Psychiatrists in Wales, invited applications from freelance writers and artists for one of five commissions worth £2,000 each:

  • To devise and deliver creative writing projects for people on low incomes with a focus on mental well-being
  • To partner with a local (voluntary/third sector) organisation experienced in supporting people on low incomes
  • To create pilot projects which can be used as good practice for future projects in other areas of Wales
  • To use digital platforms, and where appropriate physically distanced activity, to bring creative audiences and communities together through literature in the face of prolonged social restrictions

Further information about the successful projects, and their lead artists, can be found below:
