Joanna Trollope to chair 2012 Orange Prize for Fiction

3rd August 2011

Joanna Trollope will chair the judging panel for the 2012 Orange Prize for Fiction, becoming the first full-time author to occupy the position.

Since its inception in 1996, the Orange Prize for Fiction has recognised the very best works of fiction produced by female authors around the world, described by Trollope as 'winners of true distinction'.

She added: 'I love the fact that it is generously and properly open to the world. I was so pleased to be invited to chair next year's prize and [very] much look forward to working with the judges over the coming winter.'

The other members of the judging panel will be selected towards the end of the year, before publishers begin submitting their entries for the 2012 award.

This year's Orange Prize for Fiction was won by Tea Obreht for her debut novel, The Tiger's Wife, the story of a young woman in the Balkans tracing the life of her grandfather.
