Announcing the Curtis Brown First Novel Prize Longlist

by Curtis Brown 120 Events, From the Agents

We are delighted to announce the longlist for the Curtis Brown First Novel Prize.

We received 3,000 submissions from across the UK & Ireland. We were so impressed by the standard of the submissions; it was truly difficult to choose our longlist.

After many weeks of reading, our judging team narrowed the longlist to these 20 entries. We are proud of our longlist which represent a range of genres and writers’ backgrounds.

We will be announcing our shortlist of 6 titles on the 3rd October. Our judge, Tracy Chevalier will be choosing a winner and runner-up which will be announced on the 10th October.

Many congratulations to the writers of these 20 titles:
