Financial help for writers

Would having more money help you to write?

If so and you're not under contract to publish and have not previously published a full length book of prose, you may be eligible to apply for this award of £10,000. 

I'm not entirely sure why they think those of us who have published books will automatically be in a better financial situation. Oh well, I'll just have to hope people buy my books.

  1. That does seem a bit unfair. You'd think they'd want to bank on someone who was publishable.

    1. Maybe having a total unknown win makes them more marketable?

  3. All the authors with published books I know are still struggling to make decent money.

    1. I think those who make a good living from writing are the exceptions.

  4. I personally don't care about the potential money aspect of writing. In my case, writing is a bit of cathartic therapy that I hope can be a shared experience.

    1. There are very good reasons for writing other than making money, Gary. Actually the non financial ones are probably the best.
