We’re incredibly grateful to The Amazon Literary Partnership for awarding us a grant for 2022. It will allow our Impart mentees to deliver follow on workshops of their own in 2022/23, in various locations across the UK, as well as supporting our 2023 Writers’ Award workshops.
With the goal of uplifting and amplifying overlooked and marginalised voices, the Amazon Literary Partnership seeks to help writers tell their stories and find their readers, empowering writers to create, publish, learn, teach, experiment and thrive. We support a diversity of voices and strive for a lasting impact on the literary community.
This year, Amazon Literary Partnership will be providing grants to more non-profit literary organisations in 2022 than ever before, with the Amazon Literary Partnership striving to support and champion writers of all ages and stages on their creative journey.
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 that empower those from underrepresented communities to tell their own stories, as well as groups that offer a platform to aspiring writers.
“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.”
