The Society of Authors
The Society of Authors is one of the few bodies to provide grants to writers for works in progress, awarding a total of £230,000 each year. The Authors’ Foundation and K Blundell Trust make grants twice yearly to writers whose projects are for a British publisher. The grants assist with research costs or give authors valuable time to complete work. The annual deadlines are April 30 and September 30.
