Shortlisted: Zombies Ate My Library

I am delighted to discover that Zombies Ate My Library, my novella for the brilliant Blast Theory that comes out of our recent libraries collaboration A Place Free Of Judgement, has been shortlisted in the ‘Best Novella’ category of the Sabotage Reviews Saboteur Awards 2017.

N.B. Voting is now closed!

Some readers may have been along to the live readings from Zombies Ate My Library at Telford Southwater Library, Worcester St John’s Library, and Cannock Library, that took place as part of the A Place Free Of Judgement event and livestream on 29 October. In the past few weeks I have also given readings from the novella at Brixton Book Jam and the final Sylvia Plath Fan Club. Coming up in May, I’ll be reading from Zombies Ate My Library at In Yer Ear, London.

If you’d like to support Zombies Ate My Library and what has been a really exciting, long-term collaboration with Blast Theory, with 30 young people in Cannock, Telford and Worcester, and with libraries and librarians across the West Midlands, do please consider voting for it in the ‘best novella category’ here. (Update: N.B. Voting is now closed.)

There are many other great shortlisted projects to vote for also, so do support Sabotage Reviews in the important work that they do, covering emerging practice, small presses and spoken word.

ICYMI, here is our short film about A Place Free Of Judgement and Zombies Ate My Library.
