The New Voices Award has been set up to encourage new writing in the countries in which PEN operates, and to provide a space for young and unpublished authors to submit their work.
Alongside Carole on the judging panel will be Hephzibah Anderson, Bibi Bakare-Yusuf, Sjón and Luisa Valenzuela.
The award is to be announced at the 79th PEN International Congress in Iceland on 11 September. A shortlist of three finalists will be invited to the PEN International Congress to read from their work.
