Authors' Awards

The Authors' Awards are run for authors, by authors, and annually recognise the best and most promising voices of the year.

Our awards for fiction are open to work from writers at all stages of their careers, from short stories to novels, and we accept submissions from both self-published and traditionally-published authors.

We also administer two awards that celebrate the best in non-fiction writing from young authors.

Our poetry awards are amongst the most prestigious in the UK. They celebrate excellence in poetry from those just starting out as well those established in their careers.
