Bwpff2017judges2

The Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction celebrates excellence, originality and accessibility in writing by women, in English, from around the world. This year’s longlist will be announced on Wednesday 8 March, and you will be able to find out all about it on our News page.

Reading groups are invited to pitch for their opportunity to shadow the Baileys Prize this year. 12 lucky groups will be selected and will receive an exclusive Baileys package, and 10 copies of one of the shortlisted books. In exchange, the groups will read and review the shortlisted title with their group and take part in #BaileysPrize conversations online, joining in discussions about the books and sharing comments and pictures.

Note – owing to the sponsor, we can only select groups with members over the age of 25.

To apply, please log in and fill in your details below by Wednesday 29 March.

Arthur C Clarke Centenary

The Arthur C. Clarke Award is the most prestigious award for science fiction in Britain. The annual award is given for the best science fiction novel first published in the United Kingdom during the previous year. The award was established with a generous grant given by Sir Arthur C. Clarke and the first prize was awarded in 1987 to Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale. The winner receives a prize consisting of a number of pounds sterling equal to the current year (£2017 for year 2017).
