University of Wales announces Dylan Thomas Prize longlist

23rd July 2010

The 16-stong longlist for the biennial University of Wales Dylan Thomas Prize 2010 has been unveiled.

Chaired by Hay Literature Festival founder Peter Florence, the judging panel of the GBP 30,000 award has selected writers from four continents whose works include fiction, poetry and drama.

Among the nominees are Ali Shaw's The Girl with Glass Feet, The Rehearsal by Eleanor Catton and Caroline Bird's collection Watering Can.

One Eye'd Leigh by Katharine Kilalea, Dora Malech's Shore Ordered Ocean and Cailleach: The Hag of Beara by Leanne O'Sullivan are also included in the longlist.

Professor Peter Stead, founder of the University of Wales Dylan Thomas Prize, said the nominated books are of 'outstanding' calibre.

'This unique prize was established to celebrate young, talented writers worldwide and these works aptly showcase the excellence of creative writing that exists across the entire English-speaking world,' he added.

The prize, which is the largest of its kind, is open to published writers aged under 30 whose works are in English. Last year, it was won by Nam Le for The Boat.
