Support new writers to find their voice as a Women’s Prize Trust Patron

The Women’s Prize for Fiction has shone a spotlight on women’s writing for 25 years, encouraging excellence, originality and accessibility. Over this time, we have supported thousands of writers, and we want to empower more women at the start of their writing journey through nurturing their craft at our creative writing workshops with an experienced, successful writer. By becoming a Patron with a donation of £1000 and over, you will help us to encourage the next generation of women to share their stories.

Your gift is a donation, which for UK tax-payers Gift Aid can be claimed against, adding to its value*. In recognition of your support we will be delighted to acknowledge you as a Women’s Prize Patron on our website and in our programmes. We’d also like to invite you to join us through unique invitations and opportunities to explore our work. These include:

  • A complimentary set of the shortlisted books
  • Two tickets to the sell-out shortlist readings
  • Association with our talent development programme Discoveries
  • Quarterly digital 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

 

*Each level of support in the Patrons’ programme include 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; to do so, please use the contact details overleaf. 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 Patron level, the split is: donation £920, benefits £80.

Join as a Patron and champion women's voices

In a culture that still gives most of the big prizes to men, we still need an award in the arts just for women. It’s in everyone’s interest to even the score.
