Find out what our writers had to say about their love of books
Part of our mission as a literary prize is to offer ongoing support to our writers and help raise their profile, both within the publishing industry and with readers.
Over the years, we’ve worked with some incredibly talented women and have built a library of readings, writer interviews and blog posts, full of interesting snippets about individual writing practice, editing and author experiences with our prize.
