Literary Magazine Fund

In alliance with Amazon Literary Partnership, the Community of Literary Magazines & Presses administers the Literary Magazine Fund, providing 10 to 20 grants each year. Applicants to the Literary Magazine Fund must be registered nonprofits in the U.S. 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; and have an online presence and an enthusiastic membership or readership.

For the 2023 Literary Magazine Fund the panelists were Ruben Quesada, Hasanthika Sirisena, and Claire Stanford. The submission period was March 3 through April 14, 2023. Grant recipients were announced in July 2023.

Information about the 2024 Literary Magazine Fund will be available in early 2024.
