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:
In the Black Blood
Instructions for Heartbreak
Mira and Tahliil
The Old Lie
The Three Sisters Below Strang Wood
The Wickedry of Mrs Wood
