The Jerwood Fiction Uncovered Prize

homepage-jerwoord-prizeAs part of my duties reporting for BookBrunch, I was lucky enough to yesterday attend the Jerwood Fiction Uncovered Prize 2015.

The Prize, celebrating its fifth birthday in 2015 with a really extraordinary bookish cake, awards £5,000 to eight writers every year. Its aim is not just to help one writer, but to support eight fiction writers from diverse backgrounds and genres across the UK. More than one of the winners talked about how important this was for them, and that the prize money would go towards enabling them to write their next book. Supported by National Lottery funding from Arts Council England, through its Grants for the Arts scheme, and the Jerwood Charitable Foundation, it was a heartfelt evening to warm to cockles of writerly souls.

You can read my full report for BookBrunch, inlcuding a list of the winning authors, right here.
