Luna Charities and Partnerships
Luna has always been about inclusiveness. We are on the lookout for every opportunity that can help us fulfil this goal. We partner with various charities, donating money, time and opportunities.
Every year we provide mentorship meeting through the SYP (the Scottish Young Publishers association); we also supports the students of the MA Publishing and the MA Creative Writing, during their work experience, with University of Stirling, Napier University and the University of the Highlands and Islands.
We have worked with the charity Sense Scotland, to deliver an 'out of this world' event during the Festival of Fun 2019! Sci-fi was the theme of Sense Scotland’s annual, accessible Festival of Fun event in Fife and Luna organised a flash-fiction contest for the local pupils.
You can read the winning entries in our blog post!
We are always open to the charity Arkbound Foundation, whose aim is to widen access to literature and improve diversity within the publishing industry. Founder Steve McNaught and Luna's Francesca T Barbini have connected with the view to support writers who come from disadvantaged backgrounds.
In 2021 Luna Press Publishing was invited to become a Creative Partner at Middlesex University’s Creative Writing Headquarters.
Crew HQ, as it is known to its friends, is an innovative community aimed at writers of all types, styles and levels, from beginners to seasoned professionals. Crew HQ runs courses, events and have resources available online. Their regular newsletter provides information on writing.
Though we are not Bill Gates, but we can still donate part of our profits - as in the Luna part of the profit - to worthy causes. If you are a reader, know that when you purchase any of the books on this page you are also supporting a charity.
