Our Ambassadors

The ambassadors act both as advocates and advisors to the Women’s Prize for Fiction, supporting its aim of promoting the very best international fiction by women.

Most of the Women’s Prize for Fiction ambassadors have been directly involved in the prize in some way, many as judges lending their time, wisdom and energy to help establish the prize as the huge success it is today.
