On the Awards We Receive and the Rewards We Make, featuring Jayne Anne Phillips

Jul 8, 2024

Jayne Anne Phillips

This week’s guest, Jayne Anne Phillips, is a Pulitzer prize-winning author for her latest book, Night Watch, which gives Write-minded an opportunity to muse about awards—why they matter, what we make of them and do with them, and where we might find awards from things we seek out in addition to those we receive. Join us for this wide-ranging literary conversation about storytelling, language, flash fiction, reading, and, of course, awards.


Jayne Anne Phillips is the author of Black Tickets, Machine Dreams, Fast Lanes, Shelter, MotherKind, Lark and Termite, Quiet Dell, and, most recently, Night Watch, which just recently won the Pulitzer Prize. She is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Bunting Fellowship, and two National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships. She’s also been a National Book Award finalist, and was twice a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award. She lives in New York and Boston.
