Announcing The Eleventh and Twelfth Recipients of Authors Publish Fund for Literary Journals

In September 2020, we started a new fund for literary journals. You can learn all about this fund here.

We selected the recipient of the fund using a random number generator. We are announcing the winners of the July and August. We are sorry they are a little late.

Thank you to everyone who has applied.

Journals who have already submitted themselves for consideration will be considered in future draws as well. There is no need to resubmit.

The recipient of for the July fund is Blue Marble Review, an online literary journal showcasing the creative work of young writers ages 13-22. They are looking for poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, personal essays, as well as art and photography. The goal of their journal is to assemble in each issue, a broad range of voices, perspectives, and life experiences.

The other recipient is Lamplit Underground, an online literary/arts magazine devoted to all that is slightly odd, a touch off-putting and, in most cases, beautifully so. The title comes from a group of kids hiding in an underground fort with lamplight and walkie-talkies. It is nostalgic, it is unique, it is frightening. It is not a haven for the crude or the rude, but rather the brave, the adventurous, and the eerily grotesque.

There are currently 17 literary journals on the application list, so if you run a journal that needs funding, don’t hesitate to apply. If you know of a journal that needs funding, please encourage the editor(s) to apply for the funding.
