John Llewellyn Rhys Prize confirms 2010 judges

5th July 2010

The judges for the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize 2010 have been named.

Claire Allfree, literary editor of Metro, has been confirmed as the chair of the panel for the GBP 5,000 prize. She will be joined by poet Maura Dooley and critic and broadcaster Bidisha.

Allfree commented: 'I am delighted to be chairing the judging panel for this year's John Llewellyn Rhys Prize. I've always thought the prize invaluable for the way it champions young writers from across a variety of disciplines.'

The prize, which will announce its shortlist on October 15th, is open to works of fiction, non-fiction, poetry or drama by UK or Commonwealth-based writers under the age of 35.

Last year, the accolade was won by Evie Wyld for After the Fire, A Still Small Voice, with judging panel chair Louise Doughty praising the book's strong imagery and maturity.

The winner saw off competition from a shortlist that included Six Months in Sudan by James Maskalyk, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's The Thing Around Your Neck and Waste by Tristram Stuart.
