Comedy Women in Print Prize


The CWIP Prize is the UK and Ireland’s first prize to shine a light on witty women writers.

Now in its second year, the Prize was launched by comedian, Ab Fab actress and author Helen Lederer in response to the lack of exposure for female comedy writing and to celebrate fresh and established talent.

The wonder of the Prize is its focus on unsigned writers and established names with a new Award for Humorous Graphic Novels added in 2020.
