Winner Carrie Nelson, said:
I am incredibly honoured to have won the Jericho-Marjacq Bursary – I’m still a bit speechless! This is a wonderfully generous opportunity and I can’t wait to go to York in September for what is one of the most respected events for writers around. Thank you to Diana and the team for picking me – I can’t wait to meet everyone in September!

I was delighted to be a judge for this and was impressed by the range and talent there was in the entries submitted. It was tough choosing a winner as there were a number with strong potential but in the end I was particularly drawn to The Three Sisters Below Strang Wood Reservoir by Carrie Nelson, an atmospheric crime novel, so big congratulations to her.
