£7.00 – £18
IDTP

The annual Swansea University International Dylan Thomas Prize is one of the most prestigious awards for young writers. It encourages raw creative talent worldwide and celebrates international literary excellence.

Join us for readings from shortlisted authors and an audience Q&A, just a day before this year’s prize is awarded.

This year’s shortlist includes breakout authors American-Ghanaian Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah, British-Sri-Lankan Guy Gunaratne and Zimbabwe-born Novuyo Rosa Tshuma, all being selected for their powerful and challenging works tackling race, immigration and post-colonial history. Joining them on the shortlist are Louisa Hall with her kaleidoscopic novel on Robert Oppenheimer, father of the atomic bomb, Zoe Gilbert and her stunning folkloric tale of the fictional village of Neverness, and Sarah Perry with her latest bestseller Melmoth.
