The Warwick Prize for Writing is an international literary prize, worth £25,000, that is given biennially for writing excellence in the English language, in any genre or form, on a theme that changes with every award. It was launched by the University of Warwick in July 2008. It is the only cross-disciplinary writing competition in existence. Past nominations have included scientific research, novels, poems, e-books and plays. Works are open to be nominated by staff, students and alumni of Warwick University, and since 2014, the publishing industry.
