The Spread the Word Life Writing Prize




The Spread the Word Life Writing Prize in association with Goldsmiths Writers’ Centre was established in 2016. Open to emerging writers living in the UK aged 18 or over, the Prize was established to celebrate and develop life writing in the UK thanks to a generous donation from Joanna Munro. The Prize rewards the winner with £1500, an Arvon course, two years membership to the Royal Society of Literature, a development meeting with agent Robert Caskie of Caskie Mushens literary agency and a development meeting with an editor at Unbound publishers. Two highly commended writers will receive £500 each, a writing mentor, a development meeting with agent Robert Caskie of Caskie Mushens literary agency and a development meeting with an editor at Unbound publishers . The 2017 Prize was won by Jon Paul Roberts for 1955 – 2012. The 2018 Life Writing Prize will be open between Friday 10 November 2017 – 5pm on Friday 9 Feburary 2018.
