    With live readings from the shortlisted writers

    The annual International Dylan Thomas Prize in partnership with Swansea University 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 best published literary work in the English language written by an author aged 39 or under. The 2017 winner was Fiona Macfarlane for her critically acclaimed collection of short stories, The High Places. Join us for live readings from shortlisted authors and an audience Q&A, just a few days before this year’s prize is awarded.
