Each year in the lead up to the annual awards ceremony, we work with partner organisations to organise a selection of events and panel discussions with our shortlisted writers. These are a great opportunity for people to meet the writers and find out more about the literary journey.
The winner is usually announced at a dinner in Oxford in July, to which the shortlisted candidates are all invited. In 2017 the dinner will be held in London for the first time. This is part of a week of activities for the candidates, including book readings, book signings and press opportunities.
