Sometimes bad things happen to good writers. That’s why the Royal Literary Fund is here. From illness to bereavement, from credit card debt to work drying up, we all go through hard times. If you are a commercially published writer struggling with financial difficulties, they could help.
Established in 1790, they’ve helped some of the best-known names in the business during times of hardship, among them novelists, poets, playwrights, screenwriters and translators.
To be eligible, you need to have had 2 works published (or scripts/ plays performed) commercially. Whether it’s money or personal problems that are preventing you from writing, the panel will review your case in confidence to see if they can offer financial support.
Writing may be a solitary process, but you are not alone.
