Literary Magazine Fund

In alliance with the Amazon Literary Partnership, the Community of Literary Magazines and Presses invites literary magazines to submit applications for grants from the 2023 Literary Magazine Fund. The Literary Magazine Fund will administer 10 to 15 grants, selected by a panel convened by CLMP. This year’s panelists are Ruben Quesada, Hasanthika Sirisena, and Claire Stanford. The submission period is March 3 through April 14, 2023. Grant recipients will be notified by June 15, 2023

Applicants must be a registered nonprofit in the U.S., whose core mission is to develop emerging writers, support diversity, celebrate storytelling, and/or build authors’ careers.
