'BEHIND ANY FEMALE LITERARY PRIZE STANDS A MAN .... SULKING’ – Helen Lederer

We will shortly be announcing some exciting news so keep checking this website or, to find out more email us at hello@comedywomeninprint.co.uk

Despite the media’s more recent efforts to question the scarcity of funny female representation, nothing has changed. The 2015 list of ten highest earning comedians in the world still boasts an all-male line up (Forbes).

But this lack of representation is not limited to the stand-up circuit – amazingly enough – it’s still echoed across the media and publishing industries.

To redress this balance, we’re launching Comedy Women in Print (CWIP), an exciting new initiative created to bring female comedy writing the exposure and praise it deserves. From bourgeoning new talent to the established, the young to the mature – CWIP has no barriers – this unique literary prize will bring the spotlight to a valuable and highly marketable brand: witty women.
