Alumna Jesse Sutanto wins the 2021 Comedy Women in Print Prize for her novel Dial A for Aunties

Comedian, author and actor Helen Lederer launched the Comedy Women in Print Prize (CWIP) in 2019, to recognise, celebrate and encourage witty women authors. 

With not only a sequel but a Netflix adaptation in the works, MSt alumna Jesse Satanto’s Dial A for Aunties has been recognised as the 2021 winner. 

Of her win, the Independent says of Sutanto that, “her novel is about looking up into the branches of a family tree and finding strength as well as infuriating relatives. And if it pushes bright young women … to discover that they’re capable of more than they imagined, all the better.”
