Fantastic event this week announcing the winners and doing a Q&A with pupils from Whalley Range School and Levenshulme High School. We were thrilled to receive so many fantastic entries and it was a real challenge to pick a winner. Many congratulations to all those who took part!
Delighted to announce I will be joining the team at Oxford Writers’s House as Director for the 2017-2018 academic year. Now in their third year of operations, OWH play a key role in the Oxford literary scene connecting world-class writers with the local community. I’m especially proud to have been involved with the inaugural Peregrine Prize, a competition for young writers based in Oxfordshire and look forward to the awards ceremony at Rhodes House on Saturday 15th July.
