WINNER ANNOUNCED: Huge congratulations to Glennis Virgo for winning our inaugural Debut Writers Over 50 Award with Vile Apparel, a glorious world building novel set against the rich fabric of 16th-century Bologna where a young woman seamstress fights for justice and her ambitions in a male-dominated world.
