Things I Have Withheld by Kei Miller (Canongate Books) is one of the six books shortlisted for the Jhalak Prize 2022.
For the full shortlist, see the Jhalak Prize website. The winner will be announced on 26 May 2022.
Along with its sister award (the Jhalak Children’s & YA Prize), the Jhalak Prize seeks to celebrate books by British/British resident BAME writers. The prizes are unique in that they accept entries published in the UK by writers of colour. These include (and not limited to) fiction, non-fiction, short stories, graphic novels, poetry and all other genres. The prizes are also open to self-published writers.
