Thank you so much for voting for Leeds Lit Fest in the Saboteur Awards. We made the shortlist and would love to win the Best Literary Festival category for the second year running but can only do so if you vote for us.

You only have to vote in THREE categories for your vote to count.

BEST LITERARY FESTIVAL: Leeds Lit Fest. Last month we delivered 25 digital events in challenging circumstances. LLF21 was really well attended and hugely enjoyed by our audiences. The festival partners of which the Leeds Library is the principal partner had to be extremely creative in the programme delivery and very adaptable to the ever changing circumstances.

There are lots of great writers, poets and publishers to vote for but a couple of further suggestions are:

BEST ANTHOLOGY: This New North ed by SJ Bradley and Anna Chilvers and published by Valley Press. This Anthology has come out of the Northern Short Story Festival’s Academy programme which champions Yorkshire writers. There’s some fantastic new Northern writing here.

In case you need a suggestion for your third vote, Amanda Huggins is an award winning writer based in Yorkshire nominated for both BEST NOVELLA and BEST SHORT STORY

You can vote here:

Voting closes on Wednesday 5th May at midday. Thank you!
