Saboteur Awards Wins!!!

Just in case anyone missed this weekend's social media buzz...V. Press is very very delighted to share news that Romalyn Ante's Rice & Rain won Best Poetry Pamphlet in the Saboteur Awards 2018!!!

V. Press is very very proud that Claire Walker's V. Press pamphlet Somewhere Between Rose and Black was also shortlisted for this award.

With category shortlists of just five titles, it was amazing to see two V. Press pamphlets shortlisted this year.

V. Press is very very delighted too that V. Press poetry designer and poet Ruth Stacey won Best Collaborative Work with poet Katy Wareham Morris for their poetry duet, Inheritance (Mother’s Milk Books)!

Jude Higgins' V. Press pamphlet The Chemist's House was also longlisted for the Best Short Story Collection. (More on the pamphlet here.)

The full Saboteur Awards category winners and runners-up can be found here.
