Event Details

Are you a writer who identifies as working-class? If you’re looking for an opportunity to hone your writing craft and let your work take centre stage, then this prize is for you.

Writers & Artists are thrilled to announce the return of our Working-Class Writers’ Prize for the fourth year in a row. This competition is a celebration of the story; a format that continually finds a way to connect and empower. But everyone needs to be encouraged to share their experiences and tell them; to become part of a conversation we all need to hear.

Simply submit a sample of your writing, which must be the beginning of an unpublished work-in-progress no more than 2,000 words in length and a one-page synopsis for the full manuscript. You must also include a short piece of writing (200 words) in the Covering Letter section of our online entry form about yourself and why this prize speaks to you.

Shortlisted entries will be announced on Writersandartists.co.uk on by August, with the winning entry, as chosen by our judge, to be announced at the end of August 2022.
