Since 1917, the Authors League Fund has helped professional authors, journalists, critics, poets, and dramatists who find themselves in financial need because of medical or health-related problems, temporary loss of income, or other misfortune.

Many of those we help suffer severe health problems but have inadequate insurance; some face eviction; others are older writers whose income has ceased through no fault of their own. We are also helping writers with COVID-19-related income loss.

The Fund exists to help professional writers continue their careers with dignity by providing no-strings-attached “loans” to pay for pressing expenses. Repayment of this emergency support is not required.
