    The annual Swansea University International Dylan Thomas Prize is one of the most prestigious awards for young writers. It encourages raw creative talent worldwide and celebrates international literary excellence.

    Launched in 2006, the £30,000 Prize is awarded to the best published literary work in the English language, written by an author aged 39 or under. The 2018 winner was Kayo Chingonyi for his debut poetry collection, Kumukanda.

    Join us for readings from shortlisted authors and an audience Q&A, just a day before this year’s prize is awarded.

    The participating authors will be announced nearer the time.
