Many great poets and artists often place themselves in a financially vulnerable situation in order to maintain the freedom to write and create, this has always been true, but is especially the case in times of austerity. They eke out a living to produce work which is for the benefit of all. The arts, particularly literature needs to find new ways of funding in order to stay relevant and alive.
