“It seems to me that one of the best things about the Encore Prize is that it's not interested in media or showy publicity; instead the Encore Prize is interested in second novels.”
The Encore Award literary prize celebrates the achievement of outstanding second novels.
“The Encore Award is a very thoughtful book prize. It rewards young authors who have already made the first important step in their writing careers, and it complements the many prizes that exist for young or first-time authors.”
The winner of the 2013 award is All the Birds, Singing by Evie Wyld
See our 2013 Winner page for more details about the winning book and shortlisted entries.
