Polari Prize - The Shortlists

Coming up in September we have three events linked to this year's Polari Prize shortlists.

On September 1 we're at The Printworks, Hastings for Polari on Sea, with local writers Alice Denny and Graeme Hampton and visiting poet and prize judge Sophia Blackwell.

Plus we'll be announcing this year's shortlists for debut and non debut books with the help of local author and prize judge VG Lee.

On September 10, Polari will be at The Book Nook in Hove for an afternoon, family-friendly event hosted by Jodie Lancet-Grant, chair of the brand new Polari Prize for Children's and YA books.

Plus the first ever prize shortlist will be announced.

Then on September 15, we'll be at The British Library for a Polari Prize Shortlist Showcase featuring writers from this year's adult shortlists. Lineup to be announced on Sep 2. This event is free but you must book.
