Orange Award for New Writers shortlist revealed

13th April 2010

The three titles in the running for the Orange Award for New Writers 2010 have been announced.

Jane Borodale's The Book of Fires, The Boy Next Door by Irene Sabatini and Evie Wyld's After the Fire, A Still Small Voice are the titles on the prize's shortlist.

Launched in 2005 in association with the Arts Council England, the Orange Award for New Writers is open to debut works of fiction from female authors, including novellas and short story collections.

The judges will be chaired by BBC Radio 4's editor of readings Di Speirs, while Observer columnist Rachel Cooke and novelist Bernardine Evaristo, who won last year's Orange Prize Youth Panel award with Blonde Roots, will sit on the panel.

Speirs commented: 'Amongst the many debut novels and short story collections with real merit, the maturity of these three shortlisted writers set them apart; their storytelling is seasoned and beguiling, their characters memorable, their vision arresting.'

On April 20th, the shortlist for the women-only Orange Prize for Fiction will confirmed. Hilary Mantel, Sarah Waters and Barbara Kingsolver are among the authors nominated on the 20-strong longlist.
