We are always looking to welcome new Australian voices to our lists, and the Penguin Literary Prize offers aspiring authors, wherever they are, the opportunity to get their work straight into the hands of booksellers and publishers to be considered. We were excited by the volume and quality of work submitted in our inaugural year, and we can’t wait to start reading the entries this year.
