The Anatomy of Awards

The amount of money awarded to winners of writing contests is on the rise: Last year the winning poets and writers listed in this magazine’s Grants & Awards section won a total of more than $9 million, an increase of more than $3 million from ten years earlier. In this issue alone, the one hundred winning poets, writers, and translators (seventy-one of whom are women) won a total of $336,180. But where exactly is that money coming from? The charts below take a closer look at the 58 sponsoring organizations—small presses, literary magazines, nonprofits, universities, government agencies, and private businesses—that are putting cash into the hands of deserving writers.
