Literature Works FREE one-to-one advice surgeries are back for the autumn

Free online one-to-one advice surgeries with the Literature Works team are back for Monday afternoons in the autumn, contributing advice and guidance on your literature project or idea.

Literature Works nurture and support literature throughout the region. That’s why they’re pleased to announce their bookable online one-to-one advice surgeries are back.

Taking place on Mondays throughout September (7th, 14th, 21st, 28th) and October (5th, 12th, 19th, 26th) , there are two afternoon slots available per day. These can be booked on a first-come, first-served basis:

12 pm – 1 pm

2 pm – 3 pm

The sessions will focus on these main areas:

  • Funding – finding potential sources and making a convincing case
  • Networks – connecting you to helpful people and projects
  • Project management – such as setting budgets, planning and governance
  • Evaluation, metrics and impact – the basic principles, dos and don’ts
  • Audience development – making and executing a plan
  • Social media and website advice

How to Book

Literature Works ask that once you have secured your place using the ‘book now’ button, you email info[at] no later than one week before your session to provide them with a short summary of your project or idea (maximum 50 words) and indicate which two of the above six areas you are particularly interested in focusing on. They will do their best to talk across the range of focuses you select and will allocate a member of their team to run your session based on availability and skill set.

You will then be emailed an online meeting invitation.

Please note, if they do not hear from you one week prior to your session, regrettably they will need to move your session to later in the year. This is because they need time to prepare and to allocate staff time to these sessions, which are very popular.
