Event description

Description

The annual Goldsmiths Prize was established in 2013 to discover and celebrate innovative works by both new and established writers, or “fiction at its most novel.” The £10,000 Prize has already started to shake up the worlds of publishing and reviewing, despite its relative infancy, making them less resistant to innovation and experiment. Playing safe is no longer the only option. Past winners include Eimear McBride (A Girl is A Half-formed Thing) and Ali Smith (How to Be Both). Smith declared that this was the Prize that any novelist that cares for fiction should most want to win.

This is a unique opportunity in which you will be the first to discover the six shortlisted books, before embarking on a quick-fire, week-by-week examination of these texts, under the expert supervision of Professor Adam Mars-Jones. Not only will you be present for the announcing of the shortlist, and an event in which all six novelists read extracts from their books, but you’ll be invited to attend the Prize ceremony at the end of the course!
