Costa Book Awards 2017

Sarah Franklin, Senior Lecturer at the Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies, attended the 2017 Costa Book Awards on 30 January 2018, as part of the judging panel for the Costa Short Story Award, which was announced on the evening. The five short story award judges had selected a shortlist of three, which were posted to the Costa Book Award website along with audio versions of the stories. The general public then chose a winning story from the three entries. This year's winner was Luan Goldie for her story 'Two Steak Bakes and Two Chelsea Buns'. Luann's first novel is currently out on submission with publishers, so this was a very timely as well as richly deserved win.
