Established in 2017, the Penguin Literary Prize is a nod to Penguin Random House’s literary heritage as the great Australian house of literature.
The Penguin Literary Prize was launched to find, nurture and develop new Australian authors of literary fiction. Since its inception, the prize has received submissions from across Australia in a variety of genres and forms. Previous winners include Hitch by Kathryn Hind, published June 2019; The Spill by Imbi Neeme, published June 2020; and The Rabbits by Sophie Overett, published in July 2021.
