Award-winning Author Geoff Dyer Named On The Goldsmiths Prize 2014 Judging Panel

Posted at 1:21PM Friday 24 Jan 2014

The judges have been announced for the Goldsmiths Prize 2014 - the literary prize created by Goldsmiths, University of London, in association with the New Statesman, to reward boldly original fiction.

The four judges for this year's £10,000 Prize are authors Geoff Dyer and Kirsty Gunn, New Statesman Culture Editor Tom Gatti and Senior Lecturer in Creative Writing at Goldsmiths Francis Spufford, who will chair the panel.

The annual Prize, which is open to novels written by authors from the UK or the Republic of Ireland, is awarded to a book that is deemed genuinely novel and which embodies the spirit of invention that characterises the genre at its best.
