If you have a book project ready and need financial support to get it published, then Government agency MyCreative has some good news.

It has rolled out its literature and publishing grants programme today to help writers, illustrators, poets, researchers and many others in the literature scene to get funding to publish their works.

"The grant can be used to facilitate research, writing, publishing, printing and marketing of local literature, non-fiction, graphic novels, comics, poetry, biographies, studies, reports and e-books," read a statement from MyCreative.

The grant is an initiative under the Creative Industry Recovery Grant (CIRG) via the Penjana plan for the creative industries to support practitioners in the literary and publishing industry.

CIRG Literature applications are now open until Aug 30 to Malaysian individuals and businesses with a minimum of six months in the field of literature and publishing.

The CIRG Literature application can be made online here.
