Wingate Literary Prize 2024

The Wingate Foundation invites submissions for the 2024 Literary Prize, worth £4,000.

For close to half a century the Wingate Literary Prize has been shining a light on the books that best explore Jewish themes and matters by an illustrious list of writers. The winning book must be of literary merit and aimed at the general reader. Our judges are looking forward to being immersed in the wide range of fiction and non-fiction books published over the past year.
