Inaugurated in 2017, the annual prize goes to “the best eligible work of fiction, poetry, literary non-fiction, work of fiction for children or young adults, or graphic novel, written by a woman, translated into English by a translator (or translators) of any gender, and published by a UK or Irish publisher. The £1,000 prize is divided between the writer and her translator(s), with each contributor receiving an equal share. In cases where the writer is no longer living, the translator will receive all of the prize money.”
The winning title will be honored at a ceremony on November 24, 2021. For more information, including the complete longlist, see the official announcement.
