The Folio Prize 2015 Judges Announcement

The Folio Prize, sponsored by The Folio Society, has today announced the panel of judges for the second year of the prize, which will be awarded in March 2015. William Fiennes has been drawn as Chair of a jury made up of fellow international writers Rachel Cooke, Mohsin Hamid, A. M. Homes and Deborah Levy, all of whom are drawn from The Folio Prize Academy.

Chair of the Judges, William Fiennes, says:

“The Folio Prize made such a striking debut last year, and I’m delighted to have been drawn as chair of judges for this second award. Even as the ways in which books are published and distributed undergo dramatic change, writers keep at their old work, showing us the inner and outer lives of the world. The Folio Prize recognises excellence in this magical ongoing enterprise, and I can’t wait to get started.”
