What is Amazon Literary Partnership?

The Amazon Literary Partnership is committed to uplifting and amplifying the voices of overlooked writers by supporting the literary community through grants to writing programs and nonprofit literary organizations – groups whose mission is to champion emerging writers and diversity in storytelling.

What does Amazon Literary Partnership do?

Since 2009, the Amazon Literary Partnership has provided $12 million in grants to more than 150 organizations, assisting many thousands of writers. We have supported the National Book Foundation, Cave Canem, PEN America, Poets & Writers, Girls Write Now, Hugo House, Loft Literary Center, National Novel Writing Month, Words Without Borders, The Moth, and more (click here to see 2019 grant recipients). We support literary centers, writing workshops, residencies, fellowships, literary magazines, independent publishers, poetry, and translation programs. Writers supported by these organizations have become bestsellers and award winners.

Grants are given to innovative, energetic groups whose core mission is to develop emerging writers, support diversity, and/or build the careers of working writers. We help writers across all genres and formats, fiction and nonfiction, including poetry and translation.
