Polari Prize Result Fri Oct 7

A week today, one of these six books will be named winner of The Polari First Book Prize 2016. The writer will receive a trophy and a cheque for £1000.

‘Blood Relatives’ – Stevan Alcock (Fourth Estate)
‘Sugar and Snails’ – Anne Goodwin (Inspired Quill)
‘Trans’ – Juliet Jacques (Verso)
‘Different for Girls’ – Jacquie Lawrence (Zitebooks)
‘Physical’ – Andrew McMillan (Jonathan Cape)
‘The Good Son’ – Paul McVeigh (Salt)

You can come along to find out if I won. The announcement will be part of a Polari salon showcasing readings by Namita Chakrabarty, North Morgan, Alexis Gregory and Amy Acre.

I hope to see some of you there. Fingers crossed for me.
