AITKEN ALEXANDER AUTHORS MAKE UP A QUARTER OF 2024 DYLAN THOMAS PRIZE LONGLIST

We are thrilled to see Aitken Alexander authors make up a quarter of the 2024 Dylan Thomas Prize longlist.

Ayobami Adebayo’s “breathtaking” novel A SPELL OF GOOD THINGS, Mary Jean Chan’s “fearless” poetry collection BRIGHT FEAR, and Kevin Jared Hosein’s “mesmerising” novel HUNGRY GHOSTS are all included on the longlist.

The longlisted titles will now be whittled down to a six-strong shortlist by an impressive panel of judges chaired by Namita Gokhale, Jon Gower, Seán Hewitt, Julia Wheller, and Tice Cin. The shortlist will be announced on Thursday 21 March followed by the Winner’s Ceremony held in Swansea on Thursday 16 May, following International Dylan Thomas Day on Tuesday 14 May.

Good luck and congraulations to each of our authors!
