Advice for writers to optimise your SI Leeds Literary Prize application

SI Leeds Literary Prize aims to foreground female Black and Asian writers, and to develop writing in a sector that is under-represented in the traditional publishing industry. This page is to offer help for writers on basic navigation of the SI Leeds prize.

Use our How to Enter page for technical information on the entry process, and make sure you’re a fit for the prize by reading up on the Am I eligible to enter? page.
