Poetry on Loan has funding!

Arts Council funding granted

Poetry on Loan's initial application for funding from Arts Council England was turned down. We submiitted, very hastily, a new application to meet a deadline in November, and since then everything has been put on hold while we waited to hear the results of our new bid...

although a very kind benefactor, who wants to remain anonymous, gave us some money! This was enough to fund five events and keep PoL ticking over. We are immensely grateful.

But now, we have good news! ACE has awarded us all the funding we asked for. We can't start spending the money until mid-April, but we will be beavering away behind the scenes to get things started. Look out for workshops, live events, poetry postcards and our competition. Poetry on Loan is back on track!
