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
