The Goldsmiths Prize

 

The Goldsmiths Prize 2017Presented in association with the New Statesman, the Goldsmiths Prize was established in 2013 to celebrate fiction that breaks the mould or explores new possibilities for the novel form.

The winner of the Goldsmiths Prize 2017, announced on 15 November at Foyles, was Nicola Barker for H(a)ppy, a post-post apocalyptic story in which she breaks up lines with coloured words, injects spaces and diagrams, and finally carves symbols into the type as if the fabric of the text itself is breaking down.

This year's judges are: author, Deborah Levy, The Guardian's literary critic,  Nicholas Lezard; author, Elif Shafak and Research Professor of Creative Writing at Goldsmiths,  Adam Mars-Jones who will be charing the judging panel.

The shortlist will be announced on 26th September and the winner on 14th November.
