Brave New Words Award 2017 Shortlist

Starburst Magazine has announced the shortlist for its Brave New Words Award:

The press release explains:

Starburst invited nominations from publishers and creators late 2017.  The award goes to an individual, not a specific work, so we were looking for examples published in 2017 that most define a creators output. Starburst editorial staff assembled the shortlist from over 100 entries, which included blog posts, short stories, screenplays, poetry, anthologies and novels.

The panel of judges are: Urban Fantasy author Russell Smith, award winning games designer Mikey Smith, hardcore word nerd Rebecca Derrick and genre literary community MVP Alasdair Stuart.

Starburst Magazine’s own Literary Editor, Ed Fortune, is the head judge.  He said “This is an exciting new award, and a welcome to addition to Starburst’s current line-up of accolades. Starburst is proud to support mainstream and indie creators. This list of nominees shows the wide breadth of talent out there. Choosing the winner will be very tough.”

The winner will be announced at the Starburst Media City Festival on March 17 in Salford, Manchester, England.  More details about the event can be found here.
