Tiny grants
for writers


Writers Happiness Micro-Grants are little infusions of cash that are awarded monthly and sent via snail mail to a writer nominated here. Currently, these micro-grants are $25; they will grow as the movement grows. There are no strings attached, nothing to do, and nothing to report. Just a little money to cheer a writer on.

Since this money comes in cash, please make sure the person you are nominating lives somewhere that US money will be useful to them. Sadly, we are not able to send in other currencies. 

In order to be eligible for a grant, the person you are nominating must be:

1. A writer of any kind. It doesn’t matter if anyone else has read their writing yet or if they are published or not. If they are writing, want to write, or trying to get back to writing, they are eligible.

2. Someone you think is a really good person.

To nominate a writer you know, just fill out all the requested info below. Two writers are chosen at the end of every month. If your writer is chosen, you will be notified via email before the grant is mailed.

But! The writer will not be notified in advance, because unexpectedly getting a lovely card and some cash in the mail is way more fun if you don’t know it’s coming. Please note, you must have the person’s snail mail address for the nomination to be considered. 

Thanks for helping to make the world a little happier!

Please fill in the entire form. All fields are required.

The fine print: please note that if your writer is chosen, your name, the writer’s name, and some or all of why you think they are amazing may be shared with everyone in the Writers Happiness Movement. I will always edit what you write, as best I can, so that no locations or personal information is shared. No other info you enter here will be shared, and nothing will be posted on social media or anywhere else public.
