Creative Future Writers’ Award

A writing development programme and competition showcasing the work of under-represented writers

Founded in 2013, the Creative Future Writers’ Award is an annual development  programme for talented writers from a wealth of backgrounds. It includes the UK’s only national writing competition for all under-represented writers, alongside a series of workshops in hubs throughout the UK.

With the support of our leading literary partners,  winners are selected by a panel of industry experts and are given the opportunity to develop their work through training, mentoring, assessment and coaching.

We sell limited edition art prints

We sell high quality limited edition art prints by emerging artists through our curated retail website. Featuring a wide variety of styles and mediums, all our artists experience barriers in accessing the mainstream art world due to mental health issues, disability, health, identity or other social circumstance.

By purchasing limited edition art prints through Creative Future you will get great art, invest in an artist who faces many personal challenges and support our work, enabling us to have a positive impact on more artists for years to come.
