PegasusLife has completely reinvented the places and ways in which we live as we get older. Great design, social spaces that you’re thrilled to spend time in, access to great food (and drink!) and a real sense of community, makes us different. Over the past century our population has aged dramatically - people are living longer and they want to live better – we’re on a mission to make it easier for you. Our aspirational developments can be found in the very best locations: urban hideaways, coastal havens or village-style retreats - there is truly something for everyone.

"It's really exciting to be a part of something designed to recognise funny women writing brilliant stuff. PegasusLife is delighted to be sponsoring CWIP and we look forward to uncovering some wonderful talent."
Chairman and retail entrepreneur, Theo Paphitis, on partnering with CWIP:
“CWIP is a fantastic initiative and conduit to finding new funny female writing talent and we are delighted to be a partner - as a home of stationery, Ryman is the perfect partner to help bring the comedy writers of the future to the fore through inspiring women.”
Ryman has 125 years’ experience in providing essential stationery items, and expert product knowledge, delighting customers on the high street and online. With over 200 stores nationwide, an extended online offering as well as an expanding range of services including a range of furniture and storage, Ryman is still just as passionate about stationery as Henry J Ryman was on that very first day.
The King of Soho is one of the few truly independent spirit brands that is spearheaded by a woman - Alex Robson - who is a huge supporter of both the arts and women in business.
The King of Soho has pledged £2,000 for the winner of the published category as well as £250 each for the 4 runners up named in the shortlist.
Robson explains why she wanted to support CWIP, “When Helen told me about CWIP and what she was doing, I could see and relate to her passion and I got it. Funny female fiction has a deserved place on the literary landscape and when gin meets comedy…well, we’ll have what she’s having!”
The Writers’ Guild of Great Britain (WGGB) is a trade union representing professional writers in TV, film, theatre, radio, books, comedy, poetry, animation and videogames. Our members also include emerging and aspiring writers.
We have been negotiating better pay and working conditions for writers since 1959. The national agreements we have in place cover key industry bodies, including the BBC, ITV, Pact; National Theatre, Royal Court and Royal Shakespeare Company (see some of our recent wins for writers).
We lobby and campaign on behalf of writers, to ensure their voices are heard in a rapidly changing digital landscape.
