The Authors Emergency Fund

Thank you for your generous donations to The Authors' Emergency Fund. We are no longer using this GoFundMe page to accept donations. Instead, please visit our website  to arrange a one-off or monthly donation to help us continue supporting authors affected by the COVID-19 crisis. 

***

As the COVID-19 health crisis deepens across the UK, the incomes of self-employed workers from all sectors have been hit hard. Many writers, illustrators, journalists, translators, scriptwriters and other authors are among them. Book tours have been cancelled, along with lectures, talks, performances and school visits.

In response, The Society of Authors have set up The Authors' Emergency Fund  to help support authors impacted financially by the growing health crisis.  Authors in need can apply for a grant of up to £2,000 to help their with their most urgent financial needs.

Your donation will boost the Fund and allow us to help more authors affected by the crisis.
