Philip Terry longlisted for New Angle Prize for East Anglian Literature

Tuesday, 14 Feb 2017

No Text We're delighted to announce that Philip Terry's Quennets has been longlisted for the New Angle Prize for East Anglian Literature.

The prize recognises literature associated with or influenced by the region of East Anglia. The £2,500 competition, organised by the Ipswich Institute and sponsored by Gotelee Solicitors and Scrutton Bland accountants, is an important feature of the region's literary calendar.

The judges said of Quennets: 'sparse by design, this poetry is a strong reminder of the power of words when allied to our imagination, experience and emotions.'

Authors of the short-listed books (to be announced on 13th March) will be asked to attend a book-reading event at the Ipswich Institute on 28th June. Prize-winners will be announced at a special awards dinner on Wednesday 6th September.

Further details of the prize and of the long-listed books can be found on the New Angle prize website and progress can be followed on Twitter @PrizeNewAngle  

Congratulations Philip!
