KEEPING THE HOUSE by Tice Cin longlisted for Dylan Thomas Prize
Thursday 3rd February 2022
Tice Cin has been longlisted for the 2022 Dylan Thomas Prize for her debut novel, KEEPING THE HOUSE.
One of the UK’s most prestigious literary prizes, the award recognises the best published literary work in the English language written by an author aged 39 or under, taking in international fiction in all its forms, including poetry, novels, short stories and drama.
In a year that particularly celebrates the achievement of young international female writers, half the longlisted books are published by independent presses, including Tice’s publisher And Other Stories. This year’s longlist comprises eight novels, two poetry collections and two short story collections, and is dominated by themes of identity, conflict and love.
Chaired by Jaipur Literature Festival’s founder-director and award-winning author Namita Gokhale, the longlisted titles will now be whittled down to a six-strong shortlist by a panel of judges, including former prize winner Maggie Shipstead, poet and novelist Luke Kennard, novelist and Swansea University lecturer Alan Bilton, and Nigerian British author Irenosen Okojie.
The shortlist will be announced on 31st March, with the winner’s ceremony to be held in Swansea on 12th May, two days before International Dylan Thomas Day.
