Founder/Partner – The Literary Platform

What is your ‘Good Fight’?

We work on a number of commercial and public-funded projects at the intersection of books and technology. One public-funded project we run is the Fiction Uncovered Prize, which has been supported for the past 5 years by Arts Council England and the Jerwood Charitable Foundation. We want to evolve this into a new Prize for British Fiction to ensure the discoverability of great British fiction writing in the digital age.

What do you need to realise your goal?

We’re trying to create a future proof and sustainable funding model for our Fiction Uncovered project. To date we’ve been successful with grants from Arts Council and the Jerwood Charitable foundation We are a small team and don’t have a dedicated fundraiser. We’re also registered as a Ltd Co so we’re not always eligible trusts and foundations. Any support of how to run a ‘mixed economy’ business, funding or reaching commercial sponsors would be welcome!
