Rathbones Folio Prize

Great writing has the power to enrich and change lives. It can give us a place to escape to, teach us new things, encourage discussion and foster understanding.

Our literary sponsorship programme brings the most outstanding works of the English language to public attention, provides a platform across the UK to discuss great literature and ideas, nurtures the literary voices of the future and encourages literacy. 

We're proud to sponsor these programmes and support the good work of the Folio Academy, celebrating today’s great writers and thinkers and ensuring that tomorrow’s are found and heard.
