Our 2023 jury of Ali Smith (chair), Jackie Kay and Guy Gunaratne will judge the Writers’ Prize with a new, expanded format.

Since 2017 the Rathbones Folio Prize has celebrated all works of literature regardless of form. New for 2023 the Prize will celebrate three distinct shortlists for Fiction, Non-Fiction and Poetry.

Each category winner, selected from a shortlist of four, will receive a £2,000 prize and one book will then be crowned overall Rathbones Folio Prize winner, with the author receiving an additional £30,000.
