Of literary prizes – the Hindu Lit Prize, Folio Prize and Women’s Prize for Fiction

The Hindu Lit Prize 2013 announced its call for submissions a few days ago. Interestingly enough it is very clear in stating that self-published books do not qualify. This, at a time, when the Folio Prize was launched earlier this year, making it clear “The Folio Prize is open to all works of fiction written in English and published in the UK. All genres and all forms of fiction are eligible. The format of first publication may be print or digital.” It does not exclude self-published books. Hmmm. Anyway, these are two literary prizes worth watching. ( http://www.thefolioprize.com/the-prize)

And here is the link to the Women’s Prize for Fiction (earlier known as the Orange Prize) to a Google+ hangout they organised. It was a masterclass on how to get published. https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=CKANmjsX6jU

It consists of Koyamparambath Satchidanandan (chairperson), Muneeza Shamsie, Suvani Singh, Eleanor O’Keeffe and Rick Simonson. A wonderful team. I am certainly looking forward to the winner they select.
