Want some cash-money to write for six months? YES REALLY

A few times a year, the Arts Council England opens up applications for creative practitioners (including writers!) to apply for a DYCP (developing your creative practice) grant. These grants give artistic-type folk money to develop, explore and work on their craft. If you're thinking of applying, or you're curious about what the grant is, come along to this workshop. Find out if you're eligible, how and when to apply, how much you can apply for, what you can use the funding for, ask your questions, and get top tips from someone who's been there, done that, got the grant! 

Who You Are

  • A writer who feels ready to dedicate a serious chunk of time to their work 
  • A writer who has a project idea that will help move them to the next stage of their writing
  • A writer who has tried DYCP before and not been succesful 
  • A writer ready to develop their creative practice!

What you get

An hour long seminar explaining best practice for constructing your project for DYCP and what the Arts Council are looking for 

What You'll Learn 

  • How to create a strong project for a very competitive field
  • Ways to make your application stand out
  • Ideas to get the most out of your project
