Literary Art Policy

Fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction, opinion, memoir, rhetorical essay, travel writing, translation of a literary work, hiring a line editor for line edits, copy editing, fees for type-setting, cover art, promotion of a creative work, self-publishing, and use of a publishing service are eligible for funding by an R2AC grant.

Literary works ineligible for funding include:

  • Literary works with the primary purpose to relay information, such as journalism, history, biography, and scholarly manuscripts; translation of a work that is not a literary work of art into another language.
  • Anthologies or compilations of other authors’ work (individual McKnight funded grants only).
  • Any publication distributed only to an organization’s membership
