Perpetual, as trustee of the Kibble Literary Awards for Women Writers, is dedicated to ensuring the awards continue to recognise and provide benefit to female authors into the future.

We have made the strategic decision to postpone the awards whilst we undertake a review of the funding trust and the award processes, and as such, the Kibble Literary Award for an established author and Dobbie Literary Award for a first time published author will not be awarded until further notice.

We will provide further details when available, if you wish to be notified of any updates, please register your details here.
