Inaugurated by the passionate readers who comprise Adelaide’s MUD Literary Club – the only philanthropic organisation in the country exclusively supporting literature – the MUD Literary Prize has established an impressive pedigree over its short life. Founded in 2018 to celebrate a debut novel of literary fiction, past winners are Sarah Schmidt (See What I Have Done), Trent Dalton (Boy Swallows Universe) and Sienna Brown (Master of My Fate).
Be the first to hear from the 2021 winner, Pip Williams, with her acclaimed bestseller The Dictionary of Lost Words, which expertly weaves the origin story of the Oxford Dictionary, an exploration of the cultural value placed on words, and themes of women’s suffrage and equality into an immensely satisfying whole.
