The Dylan Thomas Prize is a leading prize for young writers presented annually. The prize, named in honour of the Welsh writer and poet Dylan Thomas, brings international prestige and a remuneration of $60,000! Nice!

The shortlist for the £30,000 (A$60,000) International Dylan Thomas Prize were:

Surge (Jay Bernard, Chatto & Windus)
Flèche (Mary Jean Chan, Faber)
Inland (Téa Obreht, W&N)
If All the World and Love were Young (Stephen Sexton, Penguin Press)
On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous (Ocean Vuong, Jonathan Cape)
Lot (Bryan Washington, Atlantic Books).

The shortlist, which includes three poetry collections and three works of fiction, was chosen from a longlist of 12 announced in January. The winner will be announced on 14 May.

Established in 2006 and administered by Swansea University, the International Dylan Thomas Prize is awarded to the best literary work in English by a writer under 40.

Big congrats to Mr. Washington!
