Announcing 10 future greats of fiction!

To celebrate 100 years of Good Housekeeping, we’ve teamed up to launch the Women’s Prize x Good Housekeeping Futures Award. A panel of inspiring judges have been tasked with finding the most promising female authors under the age of 35 and we’re delighted to announce the 10 finalists. Read on to find out more, and learn how you can vote for your favourite and crown the ultimate Futures winner.

Our incredible judging panel includes bestselling novelist and Women’s Prize Co-Founder Director Kate Mosse, broadcaster Naga Munchetty, award-winning author Sara Collins, Good Housekeeping editor-in-chief Gaby Huddart and Good Housekeeping books editor Joanne Finney

Kate Mosse said: ‘I’m delighted the Women’s Prize for Fiction is partnering with Good Housekeeping to celebrate their century. For more than a quarter of a century, the WPFF has been championing, celebrating and amplifying women’s voices. This campaign will celebrate 10 female authors, 35 and under in the UK, who are some of the leading voices in exciting, boundary changing, authentic, inspirational, heartbreaking fiction writing. In other words, the classics of tomorrow for today. Being a writer at any age can be a challenge – and the WPFF has many campaigns to support writers at all stages of their careers – – but with Futures we wanted to support that Millennial generation of writers just starting out, to shine a spotlight on their work and to help connect them with potential readers.’

Gaby Huddart, Editor-in-Chief of Good Housekeeping said: ‘The Women’s Prize for Fiction and Good Housekeeping Futures aims to shine a light on the leading younger voices of fiction for the future. Good Housekeeping has always been committed to celebrating women of all ages and backgrounds, and with 2022 marking our centenary, we wanted to celebrate our landmark birthday with a number of schemes and events that stay true to our heritage but also look forward to the future. With the past couple of years being particularly challenging for younger women starting out in their careers, we hope the Futures initiative will highlight some of the most talented young writers and bring them to a wider audience.’
