Mahsuda Snaith won the SI Prize in 2014, seen here receiving her award from Chair of Judges, Kerry Young.

During the week of July 11th 2016, her life changed, when she had two babies! Not only did she announce  that she had a two book deal with Transworld, one of the largest publishers in the world, she also announced the arrival of her first baby too!

For the SI Leeds Prize 2016, which one of these women named below could be where Mahsuda Snaith is today? (although probably sans bebe!) . The shortlist of six will be announced by the end of September. The winner will be announced at the Ilkley Literature Festival in October. Until then, these twelve Black British women of African and Asian descent from around the UK deserve major kudos and congratulations. If you know any of them, please buy them a drink – Cheers!

Novelist Bidisha, one of the prize’s patron’ says, “The prize is a testament to the importance and manifest talent of women and a tribute to the gift of cultural, national, ethnic and linguistic diversity. The prize is important and necessary but, more than that, it is introduced to the world as an act of joy, happiness and the discovery of new work.”

Be the first to hear the selected six shortlisted writers on Monday 19 September at a free event at London’s Rich Mix in Shoreditch, London. Writer and literary critic,  Sunny Singh will introduce the writers as they read excerpts from their work, and engage them in conversation with an audience Q&A to end.
