Chair of the Orwell Prize for Fiction, 2021

01/06/2021

The last few months have been very busy. No idle moments during lockdown. I worked on visual arts and literary projects, building on existing relationships and creating some new partnerships.

More than a decade since winning the Orwell Prize, I was invited to Chair the Orwell Prize for Fiction, 2021. We read many stunning novels, produced a high-quality international shortlist and ultimately decided on Ali Smith’s Summer as the winner.
