HWA Goldsboro Debut Crown

We are delighted to announce that the HWA Goldsboro Debut Crown shortlist will be revealed on 30th June 2016 at this year’s History In the Court, hosted by Goldsboro Books.

This prestigious event is a celebration of the genre and is one of the most important dates in the historical fiction calendar. At History In the Court, readers and enthusiasts gather to meet the best historical fiction authors writing today. So it’s entirely fitting that the shortlisted books will be announced to this audience. For details of the event, go to www.historyinthecourt.com.

After the short-listing our judges will be faced with the challenging task of choosing the winning novel.  The HWA Goldsboro Debut Crown will be presented to the winning writer this October at the Harrogate History Festival. It’s always a real challenge to decide which of our talented shortlisted authors should take home the prize. Do join us at Harrogate to find out who will be presented with the HWA’s top accolade this year.
