At the weekend I sat down with my first cup of tea for the day, opened up my web browser and was scanning my homepage – always set to The Guardian Culture section – and I came across an article which makes me furious beyond belief.
More Arts cuts.
Literary organisations are being targeted and I don’t like it.
We all need to pull together and spread the word. Without literature festivals and small presses we will lose many valuable resources which we, as writers need! And not only that, we run the risk of passing by some wonderful work which if it weren’t for small organisations or publishers would never have come to our attention. Undiscovered Genius? Nay, we can’t let this happen!
