Creative Future Writers’ Award

Showcasing the work and amplifying the voices of underrepresented 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 underrepresented 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.

Prizes are awarded for poetry, fiction and creative non-fiction, including cash & professional writing development opportunities.

Alongside our competition, we hold a high profile awards ceremony–in most years at the Southbank Centre in London as part of London Literature Festival—featuring the winning writers and prominent guest authors.

Winning submissions are also published in an anthology alongside work by our guest authors, available in hard copy and as an e-book.
