Plenty of Poetry Society Members on the lists:
Luke Wright is nominated for three awards – Best Spoken Word Performer, Best Spoken Word Show and Best Poetry Pamphlet.
Nellie Cole and Ruth Stacey have also made the shortlist for Best Poetry Pamphlet.
Dave Coates, Emma Lee and former Foyle Young Poet Jade Cuttle are on the Best Reviewer of Literature shortlist.

Good luck to everyone.
Sabotage Reviews was founded in 2010 by Claire Trévien to provide dynamic commentary and reviews of small-scale and ephemeral literature that might not otherwise receive such critical and public attention. The focus is on independent, small-budget literature; poetry pamphlets, short stories and live performance (particularly open mic events and spoken word shows). They publish an average of 500 reviews each year.
