Support new writers to find their voice as a Women's Prize Trust Patron

The Women’s Prize for Fiction has shone a spotlight on women’s writing for 25 years, encouraging excellence, originality and accessibility. Over this time, we have supported thousands of writers, and we want to empower more women at the start of their writing journey through nurturing their craft at our creative writing workshops with an experienced, successful writer. By becoming a Patron with a donation of £1000 and over, you will help us to encourage the next generation of women to share their stories.

 

Your gift is a donation, which for UK tax-payers Gift Aid can be claimed against, adding to its value. In recognition of your support we will be delighted to acknowledge you as a Women’s Prize Patron on our website and in our programmes. We’d also like to invite you to join us through unique invitations and opportunities to explore our work. These include:

  • An invitation to our annual patrons’ event, an opportunity to meet the judges and some of the longlisted authors
  • Receiving a complimentary set of the shortlisted books
  • Association with our creative writing workshops, with activity reports
  • Quarterly digital updates to hear about the impact of the work you have helped to fund, and be ‘in-the-know’ with our latest news and campaigns
  • If you choose to, you’ll be recognised for your generous support as a Patron on our website

If you would like to discuss becoming a Patron, please contact Claire Shanahan at claire@womensprizeforfiction.co.uk

In a culture that still gives most of the big prizes to men, we still need an award in the arts just for women. It’s in everyone’s interest to even the score.
