Carcanet Press is our most courageous publisher. When you look at what they have brought out since their beginnings, it makes so many other houses seem timid or merely predictable.

Double win for Neil Powell at the 2017 East Anglian Book Awards

No Text We're delighted to announce that Neil Powell's Was and Is: Collected Poems has won the 2017 East Anglian Book Awards in the poetry category and the East Anglian Writers Book by the Cover Award!

The news was annouced this afternoon (24th November) at an award ceremony held at the Norwich City Football Club. The awards are organised by the Eastern Daily Press, Jarrold, and Writers’ Centre Norwich in association with the UEA, and are sponsored by the PACCAR Foundation.

Since the awards began in 2008, they have highlighted the works of well over 130 authors, almost 170 titles, and more than 90 local, regional and national publishers.

Chris Gribble, CEO of Writers’ Centre Norwich says: “We’re delighted to partner with the East Anglian Book Awards for the tenth year. From our home in Norwich, England’s first UNESCO City of Literature, these awards showcase the strength of publishing, writing and reading across the whole of the East of England. Every year we are in awe of the talent that our region cultivates and inspires”.

And Chris Rushby, Books and Stationery Buyer, Jarrold, said: “Jarrold is delighted once again to be part of the East Anglian Book Awards in this milestone tenth year. In over 30 years of bookselling I’ve never come across a part of the country with the sheer breadth of good writing and publishing that this one continues to display - and a reading public as fascinated by the history and culture of its region. These awards both celebrate that breadth of activity and highlight the best of it, which can only be a good thing.”


Congratulations Neil!
