ABOUT THIS EVENT
We all keep track of the longlist, the shortlist, and the winner announcement for The Women’s Prize for Fiction, but we don’t actually know that much about what goes on behind the scenes. How long does the judging process take? How long does it take to read all of the submissions? How does life change for the winning author?
Join us on Wednesday 5th May at 6:30 pm to hear from an outstanding panel about the impact of this award, and learn more about managing, judging (and winning!) a literary prize, as well as working in the events industry.
A link to this event will be emailed to all ticket holders on the day of the event. Join in with the discussion on Twitter with the hashtag #SYPBehindTheScenes.
This event will be chaired by Polly Smith, Events Co-Ordinator at The Bookseller. She has been in the publishing industry for 2 years and she has worked on the British Book Awards as well as The Bookseller’s conferences in both a physical and virtual capacity. She currently lives in South London.
Our panelists will be Joanna Prior, Lisa McInerney, Melanie Eusebe, and Rosie Beaumont-Thomas.
