We are really excited to present winners of the European Union Prize for Literature (EUPL) Evie and Bianca to talk about their journeys to writing.
Evie Wyld is the author of one previous novel, After the Fire, A Still Small Voice, which was shortlisted for the IMPAC Award, the Orange Award for New Writers and the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize, and awarded the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize. In 2013, she was named as one of Granta’s Best of Young British Novelists, having previously been named by the BBC as one of the 12 best new British writers. All the Birds, Singing was longlisted for the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction. She lives in Peckham, London, where she runs the Review Bookshop.
Bianca Bellová, born and living in Prague in 1970, translator, interpreter, writer, publicist, reviewer. Her fourth book Jezero (The Lake) won her the national award Magnesia Litera for the 2017 Book of the Year and the European Union Prize for Literature. The international rights for this book were sold to twenty languages worldwide. Her latest book Mona (released 2019) will also be available in four other languages soon. Bianca is also an author of dozens of short stories and microstories.
We are really pleased to be working with these authors from the EUPL and we really recommend you check out their fantastic authors from around Europe. We cannot wait not just to discuss their journey into writing but the context and countries from which they are writing.
