Literary Magazine Fund

In alliance with the Amazon Literary Partnership, the Community of Literary Magazines and Presses invites literary magazines to submit applications each year for grants from the Literary Magazine Fund, awarding 10 to 20 grants, selected by a panel convened by CLMP. The submission period is typically from February through April, with recipients announced in June or July.

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. Organizations should be structurally and financially sound; display energy, passion, and reach; and have an online presence and an enthusiastic membership or readership. 

The 2022 panelists were Leah Hampton, Oscar Hokeah, and Jane Wong.
