Grants Offered By NYCSLS

Lambda Literary Writers in Schools Grant

The Writers in Schools Program pairs an LGBTQ author with students to discuss an author’s book assigned by the teacher. Classroom teachers and school librarians apply for the program and will be awarded a class set of books and an in-person visit from the author for up to 30 students. Once admitted to the program, teachers and librarians will be given a list of potential authors and books to choose from. All costs for the author and the books are covered by the NYC Department of Education/Department of Literacy, AIS, and Library Services and Lambda Literary.
