Auther Awards Winners
About the Awards
Women authors bring in refreshing perspectives and stories which are the perfect mix of emotions and logic. Each word is a reflection of brilliance, passion and has in it the potential to move the world.
JK Paper and The Times of India have joined hands to bring for the first time, India’s most coveted women author awards.
The awards will be a celebration of contributions of women authors who have, despite all the biases added value and creativity to this space. We wish to acknowledge and award such women authors so that more and more women take up writing and pen that first story and feel proud of their accomplishment.
Let us no longer hide behind pseudonyms and create the respectful space that women authors deserve.
Let’s celebrate the art of story-telling and encourage women authors to express their creativity and fondness of writing and give them a platform to be recognised.
