Call for Readers


The call for readers is now closed – thank you to everyone who applied.

We are looking for keen and talented volunteer readers to help us work towards a wonderful longlist.  If you enjoy reading (fiction, non-fiction, short stories, poetry), are able to read the equivalent of three novels in three weeks and provide a short report on what you’ve read, we’d like to hear from you.

What we’ll need from you:-

  • a commitment to read your allocated submissions (two or three literary works) and write a short report following our scoring criteria
  • a commitment to deliver your reader reports on or before 5pm on December 1st, 2017
  • a declaration that you will not share or in any way distribute the reading material with which you’re provided
  • an understanding that the material and any relating correspondence about the prize must be kept confidential
