Amazon has given the Los Angeles Review of Books a $25,000 grant. The literary journal will use the funds to pay its contributors and launch the complete site.

Founding editor Tom Lutz had this statement: “Corporate underwriting grants like these are crucial to helping us realize our vision: to create and sustain the most innovative new multimedia forum for the vibrant, ongoing dialogue about books and culture.”

The grant was part of Amazon’s “Supporting the Writing Community” program, helping fund groups like 826 Seattle, The Asian American Writers’ Workshop, the AWP, Copper Canyon Press, The Lambda Literary Foundation, Write Girl and PEN American Center.
