For Readers

Discover fresh fiction from new female voices

SI Leeds Literary Prize aims to support Black and Asian women writers as they build their writing careers, raising awareness of their work and helping them connect with readers.

Over 10 years of running the prize, we’ve seen many of our long and shortlisted writers go on to publish their novels and achieve great success with their work.

In this section, you can find information on our authors’ published works, alongside thought-provoking questions for reading groups to get you talking about the issues and themes in some of these books. You can also find interviews with our writers and discover how you can get involved in our future competitions, by taking part in our Readers’ Choice Award.

Happy reading!
