In addition, Amazon awarded $120,000 in grants to the Academy of American Poets and the Community of Literary Magazines and Presses to establish a poetry fund and literary magazine fund, respectively.
The program has been active since 2009, and has awarded more than 175 organizations more than $13 million in grant funding in total over the past 10 years.
Grant recipients, according to Amazon, include “nonprofit writing centers, residencies, fellowships, after-school classes, literary magazines, national organizations supporting storytelling and free speech, and publishers of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry.”
