W&A Working-Class Writers' Prize

W&A Working-Class Writers' Prize

Deadline date

Are you a writer who identifies as working-class? Looking for an opportunity to get your writing out there? Are you getting ready to take that next step on the path to publication?

Previous winners have gone on to secure literary representation and last year's winner, Steve Hennessy, is currently being mentored by award-winning author Lisa McInerney. 

The Writers' & Artists' Working-Class Writers' Prize will return in 2021.

Please note that entries are currently closed. We will be announcing full details in mid-March. The current deadline date is a holding date and will be confirmed soon.
