Pledge to support authors facing financial hardship due to the health crisis

Since March, we have paid out almost £1 million in hardship grants through our Contingency Fund to authors in financial need.

As COVID-19 continues to impact author incomes and demand for grants continues, our emergency funds are running out.

If we are to keep offering these grants throughout the health crisis and beyond, we need your help.

Please follow the links below to find out how, and pledge your support today.

'It is no exaggeration to say that this grant helped me, and my family, to survive.'
