Indie Initiative 2021/22

Indie Networking Grants for New Booksellers

September 15, 2021

With restricted opportunities to meet over the past 18 months, we haven’t enjoyed the usual opportunities to catch up with all the fantastic booksellers that have opened a new bookshop or recently started work at an established independent. We very much hope to see many of you at our next Independent Thinking event, due to take place at our London office in January 2022. The event provides an opportunity to find out about our new publishing, and hear from some of our authors and the HarperCollins team. Our Indie Networking Grants for New Booksellers can help with a contribution towards the travel costs associated with attending the event in London.

Indie Networking Grants for New Booksellers offer:

  • 20 grants available, worth up to £200 each per bookseller
  • Booksellers who have begun working at an independent bookshop within the last two years may apply
  • Multiple booksellers from the same shop may apply. A maximum of two grants will be awarded per bookshop

If you’d like to apply for an Indie Networking Grant for New Booksellers, please review the terms and conditions here and complete the form below by Friday 29th October. If your application is successful we will contact you by Friday 26th November.
