    Weʼve raised £420 to help fund improvements, features and functionality for the writers' community

    Funded on Tuesday, 6th June 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    We want to fund a better UKAuthors! UKA has been around for 16 years and now we want to move into the next 16 years with a better, faster, fully compliant website that can compete with the bigger guys on the block!

    We've already done a lot of work in the last 6 months (as our regular members can attest), but to get UKA in the shape we want and to get the functionality and services we have in mind, we need help to raise the funds.

    We are also building up to the UKAntholgy 2018 ( (a collection of prose and poetry which is democratically voted for by UKAuthors members themselves) which is a big project, as well as upgrading and beginning a marketing push for UKAPress publishing.

    Apart from some generous and regular donations from our devoted members, UKA has been self-funded by the webmasters from the beginning.

    We are now hoping to raise some funds to help us create a writers' community fit for the next decade (and onwards!).

    Hope you can help
    Thanks for reading

      This is AMAZING! Thank you so much so far for your truly generous donations. This will certainly help us get UKA back into tip-top condition and return us to a thriving, busy and above all friendly place for new and emerging writers to help each other become better in the art of words. xx
