Every year, the Creative Future Writers’ Award holds a public showcase for the new voices selected, alongside acclaimed judges/guest writers such as Kerry Hudson, Lemn Sissay, Kit de Waal, Mahsuda Snaith, Sabrina Mahfouz, Michelle Green, Maggie Gee, and Ros Barber.

The celebration has been held as part of England’s most prestigious literary events, including the Birmingham Literature Festival, Small Wonder, and the London Literature Festival.

Our 2021 Showcase

In 2021, best-selling novelist Dorothy Koomson hosts this year’s prize for underrepresented writers, along with award-winning poet Joelle Taylor. At this event hear the twelve winners read their work on the theme essential and be presented with their award.
