Nominate Sidekick for the Saboteur Awards 2013!

Sabotage Reviews' annual Saboteur Awards, which normally recognise excellent work in poetry magazines, have this year been extended to include spoken word shows, anthologies, pamphlets, innovative publishers and literary one-offs! If you would like to nominate Sidekick Books for a Sabby, here's a round-up of our eligible titles. Click to read samples:

Psycho Poetica

12 cabins, 12 vacancies.

A 'faithful distortion' of Hitchcock's Psycho. Originally a live, multi-poet performance, Sidekick worked with editor/creator Simon Barraclough to create this blood-soaked collectible.

Birdbook: Freshwater Habitats

The second part of our four-part anthology series, created with the aim of gathering one poem and one illustration for every species of British bird. Part II features a foreword by Tim Birkhead, author of The Wisdom of Birds, and new work by W. N. Herbert, A. B. Jackson and a raft of newer voices.

The Debris Field

A multi-voiced tribute to those aboard RMS Titanic. Sidekick present the hard copy of the sell-out BFI live show. Simon Barraclough (a double whammy this year), Isobel Dixon and Chris McCabe weave the languages, memories and sensory experiences of the passengers into meditations on voice, death and, of course, "the white extent of the eternal sea".

Nominations close on 31st March at midnight (UK time), so get in there!

The following day, Sabotage will post a shortlist on their site made up of the top 5 nominees and open up a round of voting. Voting will close on 1st May at midnight (UK time).
