Join as a Friend

By becoming a Friend of the Women’s Prize Trust, or gifting it to someone else, you are supporting aspiring writers and giving readers most in-need access to the best contemporary women’s fiction – plus you’re joining a community of book lovers!

Purchasing the Friend package is a donation to the Women’s Prize Trust charity, against which Gift Aid can be claimed if you are a UK tax-payer, adding to its value.* In recognition of your support, we are delighted to offer you a unique range of benefits, including:

  • A copy of the Women’s Prize Writing Journal: celebrating 25 years of the Women’s Prize, it will inspire you to pick up your pen (or just use it to make notes and lists!) 
  • A complimentary ticket to our virtual shortlist festival: three nights of book chat with the six authors in the running for the 2022 Prize, hosted by bestselling novelist Kate Mosse
  • Access to events, discounts, competitions and other lovely things!  
  • Being first-in-the know with a dedicated fortnightly Friends newsletter
  • Association with our outreach work
  • Updates on the impact of the programmes you have funded, and be ‘in-the-know’ with our latest news and campaigns
  • thank-you for your generous support on our website

If you would like to gift the membership to someone else, please enter their email address at checkout, rather than your own.

*If you are a UK tax payer, please complete the Gift Aid form emailed to you after check-out. Each level of support includes a benefits portion, which represents the cost of the scheme to the Trust, and a suggested donation. The benefits can be purchased separately at the stated price. The remaining balance is a suggested donation and is eligible for Gift Aid, which means we can claim 25p for every £1 you donate. For the WP X GH Friend level, the split is: donation £114, benefits £35.

This prize’s shortlist changes everything, so on behalf of all the writers who have been changed by this prize, and all the readers, and the literary culture itself, I want to raise the Bessie to the Women’s Prize for Fiction.
