Women’s Prize Live: 2021 Virtual Shortlist Festival

Event details

The Women’s Prize Trust is delighted to present the 2021 Women’s Prize for Fiction fully digital shortlist events.

Shortlist readings and exclusive author interviews

Following the success of our shortlist readings, our much-loved digital events are back for 2021.

We’ll be showcasing two authors per night on Monday 14th, Tuesday 15th and Wednesday 16th June. Each event will feature well-known actors reading extracts from the shortlisted books. You will also have the opportunity to ask the authors questions in live Q&A sessions each night, chaired by Kate Mosse, Founder Director of the Women’s Prize for Fiction and bestselling novelist.

Your £10 pass will buy you access to all three events in the series.

The 2021 shortlist and Festival line-up will be announced on Wednesday 28 April 2021. Sign up to our newsletter to be the first to hear.

Your ticket will admit you to the following three digital events:

Monday 14th June 2021 , 7.30pm BST: Authors tbc, chaired by Kate Mosse

Tuesday 15th June 2021, 7.30pm BST: Authors tbc, chaired by Kate Mosse

Wednesday 16th June, 7.30pm BST: Authors tbc, chaired by Kate Mosse

You can either buy a £10 ticket pass for all three events, or a £10 ticket plus a copy of one 2021 shortlisted book with free postage, courtesy of our partners Waterstones. You are also invited to make a donation to the Women’s Prize Trust, to support our work championing the very best writing by women for everyone.

*Once you have bought a ticket, on each day of the programme you will receive an automatic Eventbrite email containing a new Zoom link allowing you to access that night’s event.
