The application form requests details of income and expenditure and applicants are requested to send copies of published work with the completed form. A member of staff will arrange to discuss with applicants their application and their circumstances.
The RLF Committee has to pass applicants for literary merit before they are eligible for help. The committee meets eleven times a year to consider applications. A decision on literary merit and on the award of a grant/pension is made at the same meeting; the applicant is informed straightaway.
If you would like an application form please contact Eileen Gunn and provide a list of your publications including names of publishers, dates, and whether sole author.
Please also get in touch with Eileen if you have any queries about the application process.
