Creative Future Writers’ Award
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.
Prizes are awarded for both poetry and short fiction, including cash & professional writing development opportunities.
Alongside our competition, we hold a high profile awards ceremony–in 2019 this was held at the Southbank Centre in London as part of London Literature Festival—featuring the winning writers and prominent guest authors.
