The Working Class Creatives Grant

The Working Class Creatives Grant

Since sept 2020, we have been partnering with The White Pube to run a monthly, no strings attached grant of £500 for working class writers and have just awarded the 24th grant. We are so thankful and appreciative of The White Pube and the fantastic job they have done with the selecting and managing of the grant. Thank you Gabs and Zarina!

"Writing and publishing in general are dominated by very privileged voices so we hope that over the past 2 years, The Writers Grant has gone a small way in changing who gets to write & who gets to be read." - The White Pube

Together with The White Pube we have been thinking... The cost of living crisis in the UK is terrifying. Impending recession, gas and electricity bills, rising house prices, all the rest of it. It’s a terrible storm for the creative industry as a whole, and we would like to be able to help more people. To that end, we are changing The Writers Grant to a more general Creatives Grant. We will now be awarding the monthly £500 to any early-career working class creative who makes stuff, anything, including writing. The White Pube have 2 years of submissions in their inbox from writers and they are making sure those emails will still be taken into consideration going forward so if you have already submitted, you are still eligible.

For anybody who didn’t look too closely at the previous guidelines because they weren’t a writer, or for people who weren’t familiar with any of this before now:

  • We will be awarding a no-strings attached grant of £500 to someone who has either put themselves forward for it or based on our own research.
  • If you want to put yourself forward for it, please fill in this form
  • There is no deadline as this is a monthly, rolling grant If you don’t get it one month, you could still get it the next (and so on) so you do not need to email us to check
  • We do not expect any outcomes
  • Money can be spend however the recipient wants
  • To see past recipients, more details and the full FAQ, please see the dedicated page we have for the grant check out this page on The White Pube's website
