The Literature Program offers support to a wide range of organizations that promote the creation, publication, and dissemination of contemporary literary writing and encourage its appreciation by the general public. Literary genres supported include fiction, poetry, drama, and literary (creative) prose. NYSCA is committed to the development and support of literary activity for underserved areas and audiences, and to activity that supports writers who represent the cultural diversity of New York State. Priority is given to applicants that demonstrate artistic excellence as well as a consistent policy of payment to writers and substantial efforts to reach and to creatively engage a wide audience through innovative literary programming and promotional efforts.
