The Amazon Literary Partnership announces grant recipients

By Lauren Fruncillo May 27, 2021 - 6:21 pm

Following a successful first year, The Amazon Literary Partnership has announced the latest grant recipients for 2021. 23 UK-based non-profit literary organisations whose mission it is to champion emerging writers and diversity in storytelling have received grants.

Amazon has made a conscious effort to support a diverse range of voices from nonprofit writing centres, organisations that foster creativity amongst marginalised groups, as well as groups who offer a platform for young and aspiring writers.

This year’s grant recipients include some organisations which were supported by the Amazon Literary Partnership in 2020, as well as a wide range of new groups such as the National Centre for Writing, Africa Writes and the Scottish Book Trust amongst many more.

The recipients include Eve Wright from Artfulscribe, Samuel Bailey supported by the Papatango Theatre Company and Abi Hutchinson supported by Writing East Midlands CIC.

“We are both thrilled and excited to receive Amazon Literary Partnership funding for our Write To be Heard 2021/22 young writers’ programme. Our work lowers barriers to creativity, creates links between young writers and their communities, nurtures talent and builds literacy skills. We believe every young writer, regardless of their background, should have good quality access to the means of creativity and self expression; we can now offer more free opportunities for the diverse cohorts we work with, and have lots of exciting plans to develop and celebrate their voices.”
– Sian Tower, Education Manager, Writing East Midlands CIC
