Rathbones Folio Prize

'Everyone has a book in them,’ they say. But not everyone manages to write it.

Over three sessions featuring authors shortlisted for this year's Rathbones Folio Prize, some of our finest contemporary writers explain how they translate what is in their heads to the page.

Chaired by the esteemed host of BBC Radio 4’s Bookclub, James Naughtie, these one hour masterclasses will give you food for thought and unique insight into how writing works. Ranging across fiction, poetry and non-fiction, each will feature additional contributions from the award-winning writers Tessa Hadley, William Atkins and Rachel Long - the judges who have the task of picking the winner of the Rathbones Folio Prize 2022.
