We are thrilled to announce the shortlist for this year’s Lost the Plot Work in Progress Prize. During deliberation, this year’s judges remarked upon the incredibly high-standard of submissions. With a stacked longlist, the shortlist teases out those entries that stayed with our judges, that kept them turning pages, and made them desperate to find out what happens next.
Here, in alphabetical order by author’s last name, is this year’s commendable shortlist:
The Emergence of Evelyn Pringle by Kate Galley
The Way Back by Emma Gibbs
The Girl in the Maze by Kathy Hayward
Tea Child by Ramya Jagatheesan
All the Trees in the Wood by Stephanie Percival
The winner and runners-up will be announced on September 30th.
