We believe that if you write a book, you should be able to publish it. Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) empowers you to do just that—it's an easy-to-use self-publishing platform that lets anyone who has a story publish it. Whether it's a book you wrote years ago that never got picked up or a short story you wrote last month and want to share with readers, KDP empowers writers to bring their work to readers in Amazon Kindle Stores around the world. You can also publish and distribute your book in print with CreateSpace—it's free and offers similar benefits to KDP like worldwide distribution and higher royalties.
Since launching in November 2010, Amazon Studios has been an avenue for hugely talented writers and filmmakers to break into the entertainment industry. If you're an aspiring filmmaker or screenwriter, you can submit your ideas for movies and original shows. And, unlike the traditional path for these careers, you'll get real-time feedback—from customers. If customers love your idea, it can be made into a feature film or episodic series.
If you have a blog or website and want to make extra money, you can become an Amazon Associate—linking to products on Amazon. Every time one of your followers clicks on one of those links and buys a product from Amazon.co.uk, you earn referral fees.
The program continues Amazon’s long-time commitment of empowering employees to pursue career aspirations
