This annual prize is open to work in fiction, non-fiction, and poetry.

The winner is announced May 2023, and will be awarded £2000 prize money and a week’s writing retreat at Moniack Mhor Creative Writing Centre.

The William Grant Foundation provides funding to encourage public engagement with the Highland Book Prize.
