Life Writing Prize 2019 Award Event with Readings


We’re very excited to be announcing the winner of this year’s Life Writing Prize at the Awards Event on Wednesday 15 May at the St. James Hatcham Building, Goldsmiths University in New Cross.

From over 900 entries, a longlist of twelve very talented writers will be selected. This year’s standard of entries has been incredibly high and we’re looking forward to hearing them share their stories with you on the night.

Inua Ellams and Ros Barber, two of this year’s Judges, will be attending the ceremony.

After the readings and awards there will be a chance to network over drinks and nibbles.

Doors open at 6:30pm. The event will be BSL-interpreted and the venue is wheelchair-friendly.

You can book your free ticket here. If you have any queries, do get in touch. We look forward to seeing you there!
