Congratulations to Jan Carson who was announced as one of the fourteen laureates of the 2019 European Union prize for Literature on 22nd May 2019.

The European Union Prize for Literature is an annual initiative to recognise the best emerging authors in Europe. Launched by the European Commission in 2009, the prize is open to countries participating in the Creative Europe programme for the cultural and creative sectors. Each year, national juries in a third of the participating countries nominate their winning authors, making it possible for all countries and language areas to be represented over a three-year cycle.  Ireland is one of the countries in 2019.

Jan Carson said 'I'm absolutely delighted to have won the EU Prize for Literature this year. It's particularly encouraging to see a book set in East Belfast so enthusiastically championed as an Irish book, engaging with issues which effect the whole island," she said.

Commissioner Navracsics said: "The European Union Prize for Literature showcases the creativity and the diversity of European literature and recognises the importance of our book sector. Through the Prize and the Creative Europe programme, the European Commission helps authors, publishers, translators and booksellers bring quality and variety to readers in Europe and beyond. I warmly congratulate all this year's winners.”
