Announcing The Winter Recipients of Authors Publish Fund for Literary Journals

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

We selected the recipient of the fund using a random number generator. We are announcing the winners of the November, December,  January, February, and March funds today. Due to a high rate of non-responses from literary journals that have applied for the Fund, we’ve started to send out acceptances on a quarterly basis. 

In case anyone is confused by why March is included in the winter fund, it’s because Authors Publish is based in Toronto, and calling March, spring feels like testing our luck.

The following wonderful journals are recipients of this quarters fund:

Mud Season Review is an international literary journal in which writers of all genres support each other’s love of writing and reading, provide vibrant, kind, insightful feedback, forge significant creative relationships, and demonstrate that the pursuit of excellence in their craft doesn’t have to be formal, exclusive, or anonymous. We aim to publish strong, skilful writing from far and wide. In doing so we seek to discover voices new to us and new to publication, work that can teach something about life, but also about writing: what it can do with experience, and the experience it can provide a reader.

Lolwe is an online literary magazine that publishes fiction, literary criticism, personal essays, photography, and poetry.

Small Harbor Publishing began in 2018 with the first issue of Harbor Review The magazine is an online space where poetry and art converse.  Harbor Review quickly grew and now publishes reviews and runs two micro chapbook competitions, the Washburn Prize and the Editor’s Prize. In July 2020, Small Harbor Publishing was formed and began Harbor Editions.  Small Harbor Publishing is a 501c3 nonprofit organization.  Our goal is to publish unique and diverse voices.  We are a feminist press, and we are committed to diversity and inclusion.  We strive to fiercely promote the work of our authors and to bring new voices to a devoted and expanding readership. If you would like to contact Small Harbor Publishing, please email us at smallharborpublishing@gmail.com.
Thirteen2Nineteen: A Literary Magazine for Black Girls and Teens is a publication for Black women, teens, and girls to share their unique stories about their teen years.
FERAL: A Journal of Poetry and Art is run by a small but passionate team of volunteers intent on finding and sharing quality poetry and visual art. Now published quarterly, FERAL is committed to diversity in publishing and has a special interest in new and under-represented voices. Initially an online-only publication, FERAL is now also available in print. Submissions are, and will always be, free.

There are currently three literary journals on the application list, so if you run a journal that needs funding, don’t hesitate to apply (and make sure to add an email address you always check!). If you know of a journal that needs funding, please encourage the editor(s) to apply for the funding. If you applied earlier and have not heard from us, please email us at support@authorspublish.com. We are concerned that some editors added the wrong email address and that’s why we never heard from them.

We will announce our next recipients in the spring. There may not be a round of funding after that, unless more journals participate in the program. Thank you to everyone who has applied.
