The Association of Finnish Non-fiction Writers distributes over EUR 2 million a year in grants to nonfiction and text-book writers.
Anyone can apply for the grants intended for creative writing.
Members can also apply for a grant towards writing-related equipment, travelling expenses connected with a book project, training and temporary office rental.
The grants distributed by the Association of Finnish Non-fiction Writers are financed out of funds channelled to it through the Finnish copyright organisation, Kopiosto. This organisation collects copyright fees and pays out funds to members for distribution as grants and awards.
