Tamara Britten and Gayle Kennedy shortlisted for Hookline competition
Two UEA Creative Writing alumni have been included on the shortlist of five competing for this year's Hookline Novel Competition. Gayle O'Brien Kennedy graduated from the Prose Fiction MA in 2005 and is shortlisted for her novel 'Underground'. Tamara Britten graduated in 2006, when she was the recipient of that year's Curtis Brown Award, and is shortlisted for her novel 'Nandi Flame'. The Hookline competition is now in its fourth year and accepts submissions only from students and graduates of MA writing courses. Reading groups select the shortlist and the eventual winner, whose novel will be published by Hookline books. The announcement of the winner will be made in November.
