Our awards ceremony was no Zoomfest, it was something special. Don’t worry, you can still see and hear the unmissable insights and interviews from around the world including Elizabeth is Missing author, Emma Healey; The Poetry School founder, Mimi Khalvati; and the first woman to have a play commissioned by London’s Globe Theatre, Nell Leyshon.

The awards night really got under the skin of the winners and their writing. It featured industry speakers Euan Thorneycroft from London literary agency AM Heath whose writers include Hilary Mantel; Aki Schiltz from The Literary Consultancy who have been offering manuscript and mentoring advice to writers for 25 years, and Mary-Anne Harrington from Tinder Press, who publish Maggie O’Farrell and Patrick Gale, amongst others.

Remember, it could be you in the spotlight in 2021.
