As we launch the inaugural year of the Women’s Prize for Non-Fiction, shining a spotlight on original research and brilliant thinking by women, we are thrilled to introduce Horizons, a free toolkit designed to inspire and support the next generation of non-fiction women writers. 

The Horizons Toolkit is made up of writing resources, features and free online events, with contributions from publishing industry experts and leading non-fiction authors. From research skills and navigating archives to writing a compelling proposal and crafting an argument, the Horizons toolkit is packed full of tips and wise words for non-fiction writers – whether you’re looking to spin your specialist subject into a book with broad appeal or explore your life story in a memoir.

As we continue to add to it, our hope is that this toolkit will serve as a fountain of information and inspiration, as well as acting as a launchpad to support and inspire women to write non-fiction that sparks new thinking, illuminates hidden histories, ignites movements and reflects our shared experiences.

Check out our events page for upcoming Horizons events, available to watch with a ‘pay what you can’ donation to the Women’s Prize Trust.
