Donating makes a real impact on the lives of our writers.

We don't want LGBTQ+ writers to be held back due to the lack of funding.
We know that our retreats are reasonably priced but we also want to make them accessible for LGBTQ+ writers who could not otherwise afford to attend.
So, if that's you, get in touch and let us know.  We'll ask you for a little more information to help us decide how we can help.  We might ask you to send us a small sample of your writing, tell us a bit about your circumstances and what you can afford.
We are able to offer at least one partial or full bursary on every retreat that we run.  applications will be evaluated on a case by case basis.
We always get more applications for bursaries than available places.
You can support our bursary programme by making a donation here.

It not only helped him attend a day of writing networking, it also demonstrated to him that there was a supportive LGBTQ+ and allies community out there.

How your donations have helped.
This is a fantastic opportunity to help support writers across England.


This will provide a partial bursary to help a writer meet the cost of attending the day.


This will fund a full bursary place on a one-day writing retreat.

supporting emerging LGBTQ+ writers
Out on the Page was set up in 2018 as an experimental project to bring together LGBTQ+ writers to write, support each other and to share information and experience.
Since then, we have held one-writing retreats, workshops, groups and cafe casual meetings across England.  We have also set up an online writer directory and forum for emerging LGBTQ+ writers.
We have received Arts Council England funding for 2020 to sustain and develop our much-needed work, including online events.
