CWIP is a prize that addresses a gap in the current literary prize market place recognising humorous writing by women. The brainchild of Helen Lederer, published writer, broadcaster, actor and comedian, CWIP is designed to celebrate the achievements of authors who write with wit in six categories:


• Comedy Fiction – Best Newcomer
• Comedy Fiction – Establised
• Comedy Non–fiction (memoir)
• Sitcom Script (TV/Radio)
• Comedy Stage Play
• Young Adult Comedy Writing

As well as monetary prizes, all winners will be invited to a writer’s dinner to include the iconic judging panel.
