Swan Song, the debut novel by UEA alumna Kelleigh Greenberg-Jephcott, has been shortlisted for this year’s Goldsboro Books Glass Bell Award, which celebrates storytelling across all genres of contemporary fiction. Kelleigh (pictured) graduated from the MA in Creative Writing (Prose Fiction) in 2017. As a work-in-progress, Swan Song was awarded the 2015 Bridport / Peggy Chapman-Andrews Award and was shortlisted for the Lucy Cavendish College Fiction Prize and the Myriad Editions First Drafts Competition. Published by Hutchinson last year, it was recently awarded the 2019 McKitterick Prize, and was longlisted for the Women’s Prize for Fiction. The winner of the 2018 Goldsboro Award, which is worth £2,000, was UEA alumnus John Boyne (MA 1995). This year’s winner will be announced on 16 September.
