Two UEA alumnae have been longlisted for the 2020 Lucy Cavendish Fiction Prize. Dani Redd (pictured), who graduated from the MA in Creative Writing (Prose Fiction) in 2014 and from the PhD in Creative & Critical Writing in 2018, is nominated for her novel The Arctic Curry Club, while Harriet Avery, who graduated from the MFA in Creative Writing in 2018, is nominated for her novel Saving Rosalind. The Lucy Cavendish Prize is now in its tenth year and rewards novels by unpublished female authors, aged 21 and over and resident in the UK. It was previously won by UEA graduates Emily Midorikawa (MA 2005) and Deepa Anappara (MA 2017; PhD 2021). Kelleigh Greenberg-Jephcott (MA 2017), Kathryn Simmonds (MA 2002), Poppy Sebag-Montefiore (MA 2014), Lauren Van Schaik (MA 2016) and Sarah Marsh (MA 2009) have all been shortlisted. This year’s winner will be announced later this year and will receive a cash prize of £1,500 and a consultation with the Peters Fraser Dunlop literary agency.
