Edge Hill Award Ceremony

The prize giving ceremony for the Edge Hill Award was on Friday 25th October at Waterstones Piccadilly. David Szaly won both the single story prize and the overall £10K prize for Turbulence, his collection of linked stories about plane journeys. Szaly is brilliant writer, named as one of Granta’s Best of Young British Novelists in 2013 and shortlisted for the Booker in 2016, so I have no complaints. Below are pictures of the three of us debut authors reading: Wendy Erskine from her collection Sweet Home, me from Live Show, Drink Included and Chris Power from Mothers. Then there’s Judge Tessa Hadley making her speech and handing David Szaly his award. After that we migrated to the 5th floor for drinks and canapes till 10pm, then on to the pub for more conversations. A wonderfully warm and light-hearted occasion.
