Helping Writers

Grants and Pensions

The RLF helps professional authors in financial difficulties. Our grants support writers in all sorts of practical ways – from fixing the roof to buying a mobility scooter, or helping with care costs. We also provide pensions to older writers.


RLF Fellowships allow writers to supplement their income by working part-time in universities, using their skills as a writer to help students and staff. Fellowships are awarded on suitability for the work and are not means-tested.
