Literary Events Grants of Georgia

Literary Event Grants of Georgia (LEGG) operates in partnership with the Georgia Writers Registry and is managed exclusively by the Georgia Writer's Association.  The program exists to provide nonprofit organizations funding for literary events in Georgia counties. Organizations may apply for individual grants from $50 up to $250 to be used for writers’ fees. Grant awards are for writers’ fees only. If a writer is not listed in the Georgia Writers' Registry (GWR), the writer must apply for inclusion on the GWR through the Georgia Writer's Association.

LEGG’s mission is to support Georgia’s writers and build audiences for their work. This mission is served by providing support for quality literary arts events throughout the state, and especially in underserved communities. Fulton, Cobb, and Dekalb counties are excluded from the LEGG program at this time, since funds are limited and those counties are currently being served by Poets & Writers readings.
