The Prize

The Rathbones Folio Prize is the first major English language book prize open to writers from around the world. Its aim is simple: to celebrate the best literature of our time, regardless of form or genre, and to bring it to the attention of as many readers as possible.

 

Through The Folio Prize Academy, an international group of people who write, review and delight in books, it will discover and promote excellence in writing, encouraging people to put great literature at the centre of their lives.
