The Literary Arts Emergency Fund will distribute $3,530,000 million in emergency funding to 282 nonprofit literary arts organizations, magazines, and presses across the nation that have experienced severe financial losses due to COVID-19. Autumn House Press is among those to be granted emergency funding.
Autumn House Press wants to give a heartfelt thanks to CLMP, Academy of American Poets, and the National Book Foundation, particularly Mary Gannon, Jen Benka, and Lisa Lucas, for their quick establishment of the Literary Arts Emergency Fund and their continued commitment to and support of independent literature. This emergency funding means that AHP can continue to publish and promote our talented authors as scheduled, and during all this uncertainty, this means so much to everyone at the press. We are excited and grateful, and we’re looking to the future with a sigh of relief.
