Literary Magazine Fund

In alliance with Amazon Literary Partnership, the Community of Literary Magazines & Presses administers the Literary Magazine Fund, providing 10 to 15 grants each year, selected by a panel of judges convened by CLMP. Applicants must be literary magazines that are registered nonprofits in the US and whose core mission is to develop emerging writers, support diversity, celebrate storytelling, and/or build authors’ careers. Applicants should be structurally and financially sound; display energy, passion, and reach; and have an online presence and an enthusiastic readership.

The 2024 deadline for applications was April 15, 2024. Grant recipients will be notified by June 15, 2024.
