Shame On Me: An Anatomy Of Race And Belonging by UEA Professor of Creative Writing Tessa McWatt has won the non-fiction category of the 2020 OCM Bocas Prize, which celebrates literary work published by Caribbean authors. It will now join the shortlist of three category winners in contention for the overall award of US$10,000. Shame On Me was published by Scribe last year. Tessa is the author of six novels, most recently, Higher Ed (Scribe 2015), and two books for young people. She has been nominated for the Governor General’s Award, the City of Toronto Book Awards, and once previously for the OCM Bocas Prize, and she was one of the winners of the Eccles British Library Award in 2018, during which time she developed Shame On Me. Tessa is also a librettist, most recently working with British composer Hannah Kendall. The winner of the OCM Bocas Prize will be announced in May.
