Donate to Staunch Today!

Staunch Book Prize is a not-for-profit organisation.

Donations help us with running costs and keeping the prize in the public eye.
They also go towards gathering research on violence against women
and the effect of depictions of such violence in popular culture.

We’ve partnered with community champions Be Enriched and Brixton People’s Kitchen who see the effects of real life violence – especially domestic and intimate partner violence – on women and children every day. Join in our crowdfunder to support the prize and our research into the impact of violence against women exploited as entertainment.

You can also send a one-off or regular donation through PayPal.

We’ve offer 10 free entries to low-income writers across our prizes. Your donations help make these available so that no one is barred from entering our competitions. You can specify by email if you would like your donation to go towards enabling a writer or to general admin funds. Either way, we’re very grateful.


Thank you to everyone who supports Staunch with time, enthusiasm, donations, coverage and reviews.

And of course, a huge thanks to all the writers and publishers who submit work.

We couldn’t do it without you!
