The Amazon Literary Partnership today announced that Hub City Press received a grant to support its program and operations. Hub City Press is among the list of 74 Amazon Literary Partnership Grant Recipients this year. In 2022, the Amazon Literary Partnership awarded more than $1M in funding to literary nonprofit organizations.
The Amazon Literary Partnership supports writers to help tell their stories and find their readers, empowering writers to create, publish, learn, teach, experiment and thrive. Since 2009, the Amazon Literary Partnership has been committed to uplifting and amplifying the voices of overlooked or marginalized writers by supporting the literary community through grants to writing programs and nonprofit literary organizations, including other fantastic independent publishers like Arte Publico Press, Coffee House Press, Deep Vellum, Graywolf Press, Milkweed Editions, Red Hen Press and more, as well as nonprofit literary organizations like Kundiman, Lambda Literary, Center for Fiction, and many others. This grant will fund publication of our upcoming 2022-2023 titles.
“It’s an honor to fund these vital institutions that not only provide writers the support they need to create, but offer the opportunity to connect with their readers,” said Al Woodworth, Manager of the Amazon Literary Partnership. “Literature is expansive, entertaining, and advances our empathy and our world. We are grateful for the incredible work that these organizations do, today and every day.”
