The Green Carnation Prize was founded in 2010 by author Paul Magrs, and journalist and blogger Simon Savidge, to celebrate outstanding work by writers in the LGBTQ community. The prize is named after the green carnation and as a tribute to Oscar Wilde, who often carried one on his lapel.
The shortlist will be announced on Friday 28 April. We wish Inga the very best of luck! For the full list of longlisted authors and book in 2016, visit: https://greencarnationprize.com/
