Saboteur Awards 2019 

A worthy group of independent writers run Sabotage Reviews, originator of Saboteur Awards. They are my kind of people, the real ones I want to get to know. If old fashioned Mom 'n Pops are your style too, this group might interest you. Check them out at:

This UK based writers' group runs a literary contest called Saboteur Awards. They cover small writer goings-on around the globe. I like supporting my favorite literary endeavors by casting a vote for them in the Saboteur Awards.

In case Saboteur Awards 2019 sounds like fun to you, I'm passing on information to participate. But keep in mind, I like small presses, poetry chapbooks and independent book stores. All things micro-bright are beautiful to me.

Do you have a special literary magazine or journal (online or hard cover) that captivates you? I voted for Between These Shores Literary & Arts Annual for BEST MAGAZINE. Do you know someone you’d like to champion who published a short chapbook this year (after March 30, 2018)? You could nominate that book in the category of BEST POETRY PAMPHLET (less than 40 pages). Or that BEST ANTHOLOGY you read or that published you?  Or how about that fine literary festival you attended - nominate it under BEST LITERARY FESTIVAL. Do you attend a SPOKEN WORD REGULAR NIGHT - nominate it. If you have a special spoken word artist you enjoy, nominate that person for BEST SPOKEN WORD ARTIST. And there are more categories....  

I voted for my favorite literary endeavors, you can too. I wanted my vote to count and made sure to vote in at least three categories. The rules state: “A minimum of three nominations (i.e 1 nomination in at least 3 categories) are required for your entry to count. Only one entry per person (which often translates to per computer since this form is anonymous!)”

P.S. Hint! Hint! I cast my vote for FAVORITE MAGAZINE for Between These Shores Literary & Arts Annual
