Toward the end of June the Royal Society of Literature introduced a fantastic list of younger writers, who have joined the society as new fellows.
The RSL celebrates not only the United Kingdom’s diverse literary heritage but also the best in contemporary English language writing in Britain. The 40 Under 40 initiative honours the achievements of Britain’s younger writers, and introduces a new generation of writers to the Society’s existing Fellowship of over 500.
We are thrilled to see on the list Sophie Collins, whose poetry book Who is Mary Sue? was our Spring Choice this year. Other poets include Emily Berry, whose Stranger Baby was one of our Recommendations in spring 2017, Helen Mort, Kei Miller, and more! You can see the full list on the RSL website here.
