The Amazon Literary Partnership has announced this year’s list of non-profit literary organisations which are to receive grants in order to continue to empower writers of all ages and stages to help them find their voice and stories.
The Amazon Literary Partnership, now in its third year in the UK, will be supporting a diverse range of voices from 28 non-profit writing centres and groups across the UK who foster creativity amongst marginalised groups, as well as organisations who offer a platform for young and aspiring writers.
Grants have been awarded to groups across all corners of the UK, with a focus on supporting a diverse range of voices from nonprofit writing centres, organisations who empower those from underrepresented communities to tell their own stories, as well as groups who offer a platform to aspiring writers.
This year’s grant recipients include continued relationships with organisations Literacy Pirates and ArtfulScribe, as well as a wide range of new groups such as the Margate Bookie, The Literature Prize Foundation and Hosking Houses Trust.
It has been our mission to grow the Amazon Literary Partnership in the UK and now, in its third year, we can say we are supporting more organisations than ever before. It is so important to celebrate writing in all its forms to foster diversity in both written and spoken words. From fiction, poetry and scriptwriting to freedom of speech and self expression, we are proud that we can continue to fund groups which provide writers with platforms to have their words heard and celebrated.– Darren Hardy, Manager for UK Author and Editorial Programmes, Amazon.co.uk
