New Climate Fiction Prize – Locus Online


Storytelling organization Climate Spring has announced the new Climate Fiction Prize, to “showcase novels of powerful literary merit and to solidify, grow and expand fiction that engages with the climate crisis.” The prize will be launched at this year’s Hay Festival, to be held May 23 – June 2, 2024.

The award is supported by Climate Spring, and the winner will receive £10,000. The judges for the inaugural year are Madeleine Bunting (chair), Nicola Chester, Andy Fryers, and Tori Tsui.

Submissions will open on June 3, 2024. The longlist and shortlist will be announced later in the year, and the winner will be announced in spring 2025.
