    Poets & Writers will give 80 grants of up to $1,000 to writers who have an affiliation with the organization and need emergency aid due to the coronavirus pandemic.

    Grants will be available to “writers with a prior affiliation with Poets & Writers, including the more than ten thousand writers listed in the Poets & Writers Directory, those who have received a mini-grant through the Readings & Workshops program, and those who have received an award or fellowship administered by Poets & Writers,” according to a statement released on Friday.

    About $50,000 for the grants comes from Poets & Writers directly, with additional funding from writer Zibby Owens, Hachette Book Group CEO and Poets & Writers board member Michael Pietsch, and others. Writers that qualify received a message inviting them to apply late last week and grantees will receive the money by the end of April.
