J.S.Watts' poetry pamphlet Songs of Steelyard Sue has scored a hat-trick of award nominations this year, including two for best poetry pamphlet: SFPA Best Poetry Pamphlet Award 2013 and The 2013 Saboteur Awards: Best Poetry Pamphlet.
The 2013 Saboteur Awards are voted for by you, the readers and appreciators of poetry. Voting for the 2013 shortlist, including for Songs of Steelyard Sue as best poetry pamphlet, is taking place NOW.
If you haven't yet voted for Songs of Steelyard Sue, or any other of the fantastic nominees who are up for a Saboteur Award this year, you can remedy this by VOTING HERE up until midnight on 1st May 2013, which is when voting closes. Voting has allegedly been quite close, so your vote does count.
Winners will be announced on 29th May at the Book Club, London. It’s going to be a big celebration of indie lit in all its glory and it would be great if you could attend. There’ll also be performances by award winners, a mini-book fair, music from LiTTLe MACHINe and a critique booth for your own writing.
Regardless of voting outcomes, J.S.Watts will be there and she will be womanning a book-fair stall with Fay Roberts, who is one of the extremely talented nominees for Best Poetry Performer. Fay runs Allographic Press and will be selling its books, magazines and other publications alongside J.S.Watts' books. So if you are in London on the night, why not come along and soak up the indie lit vibe?
