Funding for literary fiction …..

There has been a ‘call’ apparently for state funding to promote the writing (and presumably reading) of literary fiction.

So first question: what, or possibly who, defines ‘literary fiction’?

The argument was supported by a lecturer in creative writing. Personally I have some problems with courses of this nature – my own personal experience on a course for screenwriting was that I discovered tutors who were aspiring rather than successful practitioners who imposed their own perceptions.

So any thoughts?
