The Saboteur Awards 2017 — We won Best Poetry Pamphlet!

glass elisabeth sennitt cloughIt was with much excitement that we attended The Saboteur Awards this year, shortlisted in two categories: Best Anthology and Best Poetry Pamphlet. It was with even more excitement that we celebrated bering the winner in Best Poetry Pamphlet category. I say ‘we’ — really, it is Elisabeth Sennitt Clough who won (and got the gong and the gin!) but, as her publisher, we are shamelessly sharing her glory.

I am particularly thrilled, as I had high hopes in this category. There is sometimes contention over these things, but Elisabeth’s pamphlet, Glass, has already proved itself to wide acclaim and is on its second print run, with limited copies available here. I also want to give huge thanks to the editor of Glass, Ellie Danak, who worked with Elisabeth prior to its publication. Ellie is an excellent and meticulous editor and we are very proud that she is part of Paper Swans Press.

Our 2018 pamphlet prize is currently open for submissions, so if you are interested, please check out our submissions page.

Enormous congratulations to Elisabeth — most definitely a poet to watch.
