June 16, 2021


 Miles Franklin Literary Award
The SHORTLIST of the 2021 Miles Franklin Literary Award, worth $60,000, has been announced. The winner wlll be announced on 15 July.

State Library of NSW Mitchell librarian Richard Neville, who judges the 2021 award alongside author and activist Sisonke Msimang and book critics Melinda Harvey, Bernadette Brennan and James Ley, said of the 2021 longlist: ‘a rich mix of well-established, early career and debut novelists whose work ranges from historical fiction to fabulism and psychologism’.

‘Through an array of distinctive voices these works invite their readers to engage with questions regarding the natural and animal worlds, asylum, sexual abuse, colonialism, racism and grief. These are stories about trauma and loss, and also about beauty, resilience and hope.’
