The winners of the professionally judged prizes – and the Readers’ Choice award – will be announced on Friday 16 October. Ilkley Literature Festival is a little different this year (isn’t everything?) and the exact nature of the celcbrations is still being explored but the prize still goes from strength to strength. Good luck all!
