This week, Rosie and Heather chat to writer Sarah Day about being longlisted for the Polari First Book Prize with her debut novel, Mussolini’s Island.
Also featuring Rosie Wilby’s debut Is Monogamy Dead?, the two look nervously ahead to the shortlist being announced later that same evening...
With a background in the history and philosophy of science, Sarah has also written for The Guardian, The Vagenda and the British Society for Literature and Science. On top of writing, she works as an Earth Science Communicator at the Geological Society of London. (Fancy).
At 6.30pm on July 24, I will chat to @geowriter on Radio Diva about our shared excitement about both appearing on the longlist for this prize with our respective first books and look nervously ahead to the shortlist being announced later that same evening ... https://t.co/W92CFYYNLb— Rosie Wilby (@rosiewilby) July 13, 2018
