Peters Fraser Dunlop logoThe Lucy Cavendish Fiction Prize is sponsored by Peters Fraser and Dunlop (PFD), one of the longest-established literary and talent agencies in London.

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

PFD agent Nelle Andrew is a leading champion of the Prize and served on the judging panel in 2015, 2016 and again in 2017. For the 2018 prize, Marilia Savvides will join us as a judge.  PFD kindly provide valuable industry insights to our shortlisted authors, through one-to-one consultations with Nelle or Marilia, who share editorial feedback and discussions about the marketability of the shortlisted work.

Always on the look-out for new writing talent, Marilia works with a wide variety of authors. 

As part of the 2018 judging panel, Marilia will be looking for unique storytelling and compelling prose – perhaps her next bestseller?
