    for Fiction by women and new writers, respectively, who are published in UK;

    R&BLers ran a series in 2011 on literary prizes called, And the Winner Is. . . edited by 88kathy that focused on little known lit prizes all over the world.  I really liked it, but I guess I was one of the few.

      I updated this diary with the women who won Nobels, Pulitzers and Bookers for Novels since 1950 and the lists do point towards many of the best writers of our time. Just like they ought to.
