We are excited to announce the shortlist for The Painkiller Prize. Over the coming weeks Bitter Pill will, alongside Jon Brittain, consider each shortlisted pitch before meeting with each writer to discus their idea. After this we will select the winner of The Painkiller Prize 2023/24...


Bitter Pill wants to thank everyone who has contributed towards making this prize possible over the last few months.


In particular, our readers: Marlie Haco, Will Byam Shaw, Nadya Menuhin and Alex Kampfner.
