Ellams, Feeney, Zhang & Volckmer Longlisted for Rathbones Folio Prize 2021
Authors Inua Ellams, Elaine Fenney, C Pam Zhang and RCW colleague Katharina Volckmer are among the 20-strong longlist for the Rathbones Folio Prize 2021. Ellams is longlisted for The Actual, a collection of fifty personal and political poems, and Feeney, Zhang and Volckmer for their debut novels As You Were, How Much of These Hills is Gold and The Appointment respectively.
Launched in 2013, the Rathbones Folio Prize is the only literature prize open to all works of fiction and non-fiction originally published in the English language. Last year the prize was awarded to RCW author Valeria Luiselli for her "fiercely imaginative" autobiographical third novel, and her first to be written in English, Lost Children Archive (Fourth Estate).
