Grant Writing & Consultancy

As a former marketer, Connor brings a wealth of business writing and copywriting experience to grant proposals.


Everything begins with a consult, an hour long discussion about your project to help develop it ready for a funder. All sessions are billed at £35 per hour.

As a certified Business Coach, Connor is able to help develop your creative business, set new goals and create a healthier arts pratice.


Let’s face it, all artists could do with a little more money to achieve their aims. We’r renowed for always thinking bigger, after all. With grants, almost anything is possible.

Connor’s writing rates start at £250 per day with discounts and payment plans available on a dicretionary basis. A typical Arts Council Project Grant usually takes 4 days, spread over a fortnight to allow for revisions.

Connor believes grantwriting should be a collaborative affair, and offers revisions and edits throughout the process.
