Their generous support and vision for the Prize has enabled many shortlisted and winning authors to begin successful literary careers.

PFD kindly provide valuable industry insights to our shortlisted authors, through one-to-one consultations with judge, Nelle Andrew, who shares editorial feedback and discussions about the marketability of the shortlisted work.

As part of the 2020 judging panel, Nelle will be looking for unique storytelling and compelling prose – perhaps her next bestseller?
