Dear Sarah and Polly, I was just wondering if you are running the Greenhouse Prize this year? Thank you for your time, Kind Regards, Fíona Scarlett
I have been waiting for somebody to ask me that question, so am pleased that you have done so! (It has also prompted me to update the relevant bit of the site.)
Yes. We are intending to run the Funny Prize this year. Leah Thaxton – who is the Publisher at Faber Children’s Books and my co-judge – and I have just been having a bit of trouble pinning down a schedule that suits us both. I am hoping to have news very soon. The minute I do, it will appear under the ‘Greenhouse Prize’ tab on the website and on my Twitter account @NolanPolly, complete with entry details, deadlines etc.
All best wishes
