Seeking funding for time to write?

Want help with an Arts Council England Project Grant or Developing Your Creative Practice application?

We can help you take the next step with confidence.


Applying to Arts Council England can help you buy that time to really commit to finishing your book.

We can:

  • Advise on the best pots of funding for you.
  • Advise on completing an Arts Council application.
  • Read draft application and advise you on improving it.

Story Machine is great to work with. Sam’s comprehensive understanding of grant application processes and procedures inspires confidence. His intelligence, combined with his practical knowledge of how Arts Practitioners’ minds work, means that he can quickly grasp and translate into a well phrased application the plans and projects of his clients. And his generosity, patience and good humour are a joy to encounter in the competitive world of Arts Funding.

‘Sam gave us really useful advice for improving our funding application, alongside helping us make sense of the budgeting section, which was our particular headache. He also introduced us to others who have become key contacts for us. He’s brilliant to work with and always happy to help.’
