Art's Council Support, National Lottery Funding
Regular visitors might notice a new logo. I am so pleased - have been awarded a grant to polish the great oeuvre, and my novel in progress now has the official support of Arts Council England and funding from the National Lottery. I am hugely grateful to them, and am looking forward with not a little trepidation to the next stage in the writing process.
One of the conditions of this lovely development is that I have to let people know about this support, and the logos will now be firmly affixed to everything to do with the great oeuvre. Part of my proposal was that I would use this blog to set out the process of grant application, and talk at intervals about my own use of the grant. Seems a nice thing to do, really. After all, the crossed fingers of the National Lottery could just as well be the crossed fingers of 'Please make my work as good as it can be...'!
If you would like to find out about Grants for the Arts, or any other aspect of the work of Arts Council England, please click on the logo over there.
And if you have any questions about the rather complicated application process I've just been through - do ask. I'll do my best to answer.
