Pilkington Writer's Fund
Dorothy Pilkington has set up a fund from the monies accrued through sales of her published book – ‘Signs of the Times’. The fund, administered by FDCA (Feilding & Districts Community Archive), is to provide a seeding loan to assist specifically with the printing costs of future publications that deal with some aspect of the history of Manawatu - that is for printing costs of a book written, proofed and formatted ready for publication.
written work must be in book form and not have been included in an
existing journal/magazine. It will be submitted to the FDCA Governance
Committee and then to the Pilkingtons for their review.
Terms & Conditions
This is not a grant fund, but a loan fund. The author will be required to repay the loan at quarterly instalments over an agreed period once the book is released. The interest rate will be determined by the governance committee.
