Nina Stibbe, Helen Lederer & Cathy Rentzenbrink: Comedy Women in Print

Comedy Women in Print is the brainchild of comedian, author, actress Helen Lederer. It is a new literary prize that was established with the aim of recognising, celebrating and encouraging witty women authors.

​Winners of the  CWIP Unpublished award are published by Harper Collins and receive an advance and huge attention. The Unpublished runner up wins a place on an MA in Creative Writing at the University of Hertfordshire and an MA in Comedy at Falmouth University.


Adults: £7, Students: £5 

A £1 Poly Fund payment will be added to each ticket sold.
