The Society of Authors: The Authors’ Emergency Fund

Emergency funding for authors affected by the COVID-19 Coronavirus crisis.  The Authors Licensing and Collecting Society (ALCS), the Royal Literary Fund (RLF), the T S Eliot Foundation in partnership with English PEN, and Amazon UK generously contributed financial resources to create the Authors’ Emergency Fund, to help support authors impacted financially by the growing health crisis.

Funding is still available for 2021. Applications are open to all professional authors who are resident in the UK or British subjects.

Grants are likely to be up to £2,000 and designed to meet urgent need with the possibility of review as the situation continues.
