Deadline for 2020 Applications: January 15
As Publishing Perspectives readers know, the Amazon Literary Partnership is one of the retailer’s corporate philanthropy programs, and is aimed at helping to fund literary nonprofits that in various ways support the work of authors.
The program has opened its submissions period for applications, with a deadline of January 15. An application portal is here. Grant recipients are to be notified by May 15.
In terms of eligibility, we quote from the company’s information: “Applicants must be a registered nonprofit organization in the United States, whose core mission is to develop emerging writers, support diversity, celebrate storytelling, and/or build authors’ careers. Organizations should be structurally and financially sound; display energy, passion, and reach; have an online presence and an enthusiastic membership or readership. We rarely support school-affiliated programs (K-12, MFAs).”
