An exciting weekend for Clare Owen, author of Zed and the Cormorants, who describes herself as ‘beyond chuffed’ that not only did Zed win the YA Holyer An Gof award for 2022, but Clare herself won the Ann Trevenen Jenkin cup for authorship of a book for children or Young Adults.
We’ve agree the cup can stay with Clare for the year – it’s all hers! We get a certificate.
There will be an interview between Tiffany Truscott, who chaired the ceremony and Clare and winners in other categories on Radio Cornwall in the near future, when we find it we’ll let you know!
The Holyer An Gof awards are administered by Gorsedh Kernow
