Canadian Writers' Emergency Relief Fund Announces New Round of Funding

The Canadian Writers' Emergency Relief Fund has announced a new round of funding for June.

The fund, created as a partnership between the Writers' Trust, Writers Union of Canada, and Royal Bank, offers funding to professional writers who have lost at least $1500 of income between March and August of 2020. To date, the fund has distributed over $360,000 to Canadian writers who have lost revenue as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Writers must send in their applications by June 15. Those who have already applied will continue to be considered.
