At the British Book Awards in June 2020 Carty-Williams became the first black woman to win the "Book of the Year" accolade, for Queenie.

She has written for publications including The Guardian, i-D, Vogue, The Sunday Times, BEAT Magazine, and Black Ballad, and is a contributor to the anthology New Daughters of Africa (2019), edited by Margaret Busby.

Source Notes

Full name, year and place from England & Wales Civil Registration Birth Index. Sy Scholfield quotes Carty-Williams on Twitter: "People who wished me a happy birthday before most of my friends" (posted 21 July 2018) [1], "As a cancer with scorpio rising, I co-sign Queenie being on this list even though she’s a Leo" [2]. A speculative birth time of 3:30 PM gives this combination.
