The Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year is a British Literary award administered by the Society of Authors and sponsored by the Sunday Times newspaper. According to the Sunday Times "the prize has proved an unfailingly reliable guide to youthful literary endeavour, spotting early a bevy of talented writers who have gone on to become significant literary figures". (Youth in this case is interpreted as meaning under the age of thirty-five.)

The winner of the 2007 award was Naomi Alderman who received the good news together with a cheque for £5,000 at a special lunch held at the Sunday Times Oxford Literary Festival on Sunday, 25th March 2007.
