The Amazon Literary Partnership is now accepting grant applications from UK-based non-profit literary organisations a fourth year.
In 2022, the ALP supported 28 literary groups across the UK. From organisations dedicated to helping children and young adults develop their writing skills (such as the Ministry of Stories, pictured), to those championing the next generation of playwrights who might otherwise lack pathways into theatre.
Every year we ask people across Scotland to share their true stories with us. The opportunity is open to everyone regardless of writing experience, from those who have never written before to those who write regularly. It’s an opportunity to share personal experiences and for some, to be published for the first time. Books and stories have such a long-lasting legacy, for generations past and those to come. New voices deserve to be heard and we are grateful to The Amazon Literary Partnership for supporting the Your Stories programme and helping to unveil stories and talent right here on our doorsteps.
