Founded in 2013, the Creative Future Writers' Award is the UK’s only national writing competition and high profile awards ceremony for under-represented writers. We showcase talented writers who lack opportunities due to mental health issues, disability, identity or other social circumstance. Prizes are awarded for both poetry and short fiction, including £1000 of cash prizes & professional writing development support. Winners are selected by a panel of industry experts.
Our 2018 winners read their work alongside the incredible Lemn Sissay and award-winning author Kerry Hudson at our sell-out Showcase Event, as part of the London Literature Festival on the South Bank on Friday, 26th October 2018.
