KEEPING THE HOUSE by Tice Cin is on the Jhalak Prize longlist
Tuesday 15th March 2022
The Jhalak Prize awards celebrate writing by British and British resident writers of colour and annually awards £1,000 to two winners. The winners also receive a unique work of art created for the prize by artists of colour under the Jhalak Art Residency.
Prize director Sunny Singh said: “In the sixth year of the Jhalak Prize, and second for our dedicated Children’s & Young Adult Prize, there is so much to celebrate, starting with a larger number of submissions than ever before. Our longlists this year demonstrate the extraordinary variety and quality of work being produced by writers of colour in Britain and ranging from pioneering fiction and luminous poetry to insightful non-fiction. Each of these books defy conventions, expand writing repertoires into new genres, and break new ground in form, technique and style. These are books to savour, to love and remember long after the last page!”
The winners of the prizes will be revealed on 26th May.
