Sally Campbell and Krishan Coupland shortlisted for Tibor Jones Pageturner Prize
Debut novels by two UEA writers have been included in the shortlist of five titles for the Tibor Jones Pageturner Prize for currently unrepresented novelists. Sally Campbell graduated from the MA in Creative Writing (Prose Fiction) in 2010 and is nominated for her novel ‘Burnt Island’. Krishan Coupland is a current student on the Creative Writing MA and is nominated for his young adult novel ‘You Must Be Charlie’s Brother’. Earlier this year Krishan (pictured) was second in the Poetry Book Society Student Poetry Competition, and in 2011 he was the winner of the Manchester Fiction Prize. Launched in 2011, the Tibor Jones Pageturner Prize is worth £1,000 to the winner, who will be announced next month. The judges include Sophie Lambert, a literary agent at Conville & Walsh, and the novelist Evie Wyld.
