The Lesbian Writers Fund of the Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice works for social, racial and economic justice in the U.S. and internationally. Our grant-making and philanthropic advocacy programs help lesbians and allied communities challenge oppression and claim their human rights.
Astraea's Lesbian Writers Fund supports the work of emerging lesbian writers, and acknowledges their contributions to our movement and culture. First place awardees in each category receive $10,000, and there are additional cash prizes for runners-up.
This year's deadline for application is Friday, June 30, 2006.
