Spread the Word: Free Workshop on applying for Developing Your Creative Practice (DYCP) funding
Tue 15 Jun 2021 to Tue 15 Jun 2021
If you are not familiar with applying for grant funding, filling out an application form can be a daunting and baffling process. Ruth Harrison and Eva Lewin from Spread the Word will be running a free online workshop for London-based writers on Tuesday 15 June 2021. Apply by 1st June.

They will talk you through the different questions in the DYCP form to help you think about how you can respond to them. Once you have attended the workshop you can send your draft application to Spread the Word for 20 minute phone feedback.

This workshop is open to London-based writers of any literary form including screenwriting, playwriting and graphic novels. 

The Arts Council England’s Developing Your Creative Practice scheme is for individual artists to apply for lottery funding to develop a new piece of creative work and/or a new way of working. You can apply for up to £10,000 towards for e.g., mentoring, time to create new work, research, training or professional development costs.

Whatever it is you want to do, the project you have in mind must be a clear development opportunity. ACE also know that Covid-19 has had a significant impact and that many artists will need to develop themselves and their work to respond to the new environment.

Places are limited and, because of the nature of the workshop, we are only able to offer spaces to applicants whose ideas are suitable for this funding stream. You will also need to show at least one year’s track record as a writer outside of a formal educational setting.

Date: Tuesday 15 June 2021, 6.30-8.00pm
Location: Online via Zoom
Cost: Free

Apply by Tuesday 1 June  2021,10 am.
