Dear Friends of Short Run,
We are finding it hard to make a closing statement about 2020: It was hard, confusing, shocking/not shocking, boring, scary, and it went on and on.

Your donations and your support helped keep the lights on throughout it all.

Short Run is honored to be among the grantees! This is the first relief grant we have received and it gives us hope that we can outlast the COVID-19 disaster.
The Literary Arts Emergency Fund, launched and administered by the Academy of American Poets, the Community of Literary Magazine & Presses, and the National Book Foundation, has announced that it will distribute $3.5 million in emergency funding to 282 nonprofit literary arts organizations, magazines, and publishers who have been severely financially affected by COVID-19. The organizations receiving support have cumulatively reported over $27 million in financial losses and are projecting over $48 million in financial losses in the next year. Literary Arts Emergency Fund was established “in response to the lack of institutional support for the nonprofit organizations and presses that sustain literary culture in the U.S.,” and was made possibly by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Read more here.
