WNDB Emergency Fund for Diverse Creatives
Our emergency grants provide assistance to diverse authors, illustrators, and publishing professionals.
Many diverse creatives have lost their livelihoods because of the pandemic, whether due to canceled school visits or due to layoffs and furloughs at publishers and literary agencies. We aim to bolster these groups during this time of crisis by giving grants between $500 and $1,000 each.
To be eligible for assistance:
- Diverse writers and/or illustrators must be traditionally published and are experiencing financial need. We accept all genres and age categories.
- Diverse publishing professionals who are experiencing financial need. Positions include but are not limited to: editors, agents, publicists, designers, and sales positions.
- All applications will be kept confidential. We will not list the recipients publicly.
- Applicants should receive a response within a few weeks.
