The Department continues to work closely with Arts Council England (ACE) to support authors through the different stages of their careers. ACE funding enables a diverse range of individuals to develop as writers, including those less able to access mainstream opportunities, and supports a broad range of free, concessionary and targeted opportunities for writers, including Arvon’s bursaries, Writing West Midlands ‘Room 204’, Ideas Tap ‘Inspires’, and the Creative Future Literary Awards (promoting marginalised and disabled writers).</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>ACE also fund individual writers through the Artists' International Development programme, a £750,000 fund which offers early stage development opportunities for individual artists to build links in another country. Around 7 per cent of applications funded to date were from literature individuals. In addition, through ACE’s National Portfolio over 2015-18, print and e-publishing will be supported with a total investment of £1,565,370 to support writers to create new work.</p>
