The Prize

The Climate Fiction Prize is a new literary prize that will celebrate the most inspiring novels tackling the climate crisis.

We want to reward and showcase powerful stories that depict the human response to climate change; how it impacts us and how society responds. 

For societies to fully grasp the climate change threat and to embrace its solutions, we need better stories. It’s not enough for audiences to know about climate change; they need to see an uncertain future and understand that change is urgent but possible. 

Many of us already see tackling climate as important; but we don’t always know how we should respond. Fiction can help us imagine what change can look like.
