The objective of the Scheme is to promote literary arts development in Hong Kong with the view to elevate the standard and broaden the accessibility of literary works, to provide an open platform for literary works and to promote literary activities. Through the Scheme, we support the publication of quality literary magazines and organising of professional literary activities. It  supports the organisations to have long-term planning for professional development. This in turn nurtures talents in publication and administrators for literary arts, helps build up and expand readership, and promotes a deeper understanding of literary arts in the community.

The Scheme supports publication of quality literary arts magazines and encourages promotional activities through funding. The current grant periods are one year and three years.


An arts organisation applicant must be a non-profit company limited by guarantee without a share capital which is registered in Hong Kong, with a reputable and effectively operating Board of Directors (the "Board") to monitor all aspects of the project's operation and decision. We will not consider an application for the “Literary Arts Platform Scheme” submitted in the name of an individual, a sole proprietorship or a partnership. We also do not accept any application for this scheme from any arts organisation that is the parent company or subsidiary of the arts organisations currently receiving “Literary Arts Platform Scheme” from us, or the parent company or subsidiary of any new applicant organisation that applies at the same time.
