Jeremy Page longlisted for International Impac Dublin literary award.

UEA alumnus Jeremy Page has been nominated for the 2015 International Impac Dublin literary award for his novel ‘The Collector of Lost Things’, which was published by Little Brown last year. Jeremy (pictured) graduated from the Creative Writing MA in 1994 and returned to UEA as a Writing Fellow in 2010 and as a tutor on the MA programme in 2011. He has worked as a script editor for the BBC, Channel 4 and Film Four, and is currently working on an original screenplay for Working Title TV. His first novel, ‘Salt’, was published by Penguin in 2007 and shortlisted for the Jelf First Novel Award and the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize. His second novel, ‘The Wake’, won the Fiction prize in the 2009 East Anglian Book Awards and was shortlisted for the New Angle Prize for East Anglian Literature. The Impac award is organised by Dublin City Public Libraries, which invites nominations from libraries around the world. Worth €100,000, it is one of the world’s richest literary prizes, and was won by UEA alumnus Andrew Miller in 1999 for his debut novel, ‘Ingenious Pain’. The 2015 winner will be announced on 17th June.
