Candice Carty-Williams

Candice studied Media at Sussex because her sixth form teachers said that she wasn’t clever enough to do English, but she showed them all by first working at the Guardian Guide and then moving into publishing at 23. Candice has worked on marketing literary fiction, non-fiction and graphic novels ever since. In 2016, Candice created and launched the Guardian and 4th Estate BAME Short Story Prize, a prize that aims to find, champion and celebrate black, asian and minority ethnic writers. Candice also contributes regularly to Refinery29 and i-D.
