2011 J.G. Farrell Fiction award for best novel-in-progress

I’m delighted that my novel, Tell Me In Tamil (draft title)has won the 2011 J.G. Farrell Fiction award for best novel-in-progress. The competition is organized by the West Cork Literary Festival. The adjudicator is Gillian Slovo, South African born novelist, playwright and memoirist. The prize includes a place in the Halfway Through workshop led by Gillian, and accommodation for the week at a hotel. How wonderful!

There will be a presentation of the award on Sunday 13 July at 18:00 at the official opening of the festival, at the Bantry Library. Please come! More details here.

There are some very exciting events and authors appearing at the festival – John Banville, Linda Grant, David Mitchell, Hisham Matar and many others, as well as creative writing workshops. A festival well worth coming to.
