If you like DIVERSIFLY and/or #METOO poetry anthology you may want to consider voting for them.. It seems to me they would both fit in the
Best Anthology Category
A collection of works by more than one author, not restricted by genre, theme or form. This could be a combination of fiction and poetry, or even a combination with another art form, like visual art. Note: ‘Best of’ type of anthologies are not eligible. Multiple authors: multiple texts. Must have been published after 30th March 2017.
and DIVERSIFLY as a project – with its blogs, commissioned poems, podcasts, and book would fit into
Best Collaborative Work
A literary work or project that has been created as a collaboration between two or more people, perhaps in multiple forms or genres. Must have been created after or substantially changed since 30th March 2017.
You may or may not have heard of the Saboteur Awards – they are a fantastic. And well regarded. It would be lovely for everyone involved in these 2 books/projects to receive this recognition! Here is a description from their website:
Sabotage Reviews was founded in 2010 by Claire Trévien to provide dynamic commentary and reviews of small-scale and ephemeral literature that might not otherwise receive such critical and public attention. The focus is on independent, small-budget literature; poetry pamphlets, short stories and live performance (particularly open mic events and spoken word shows). We publish an average of 500 reviews each year.
Sabotage is representative of the hugely diverse amount of work actually being made and written in the ‘literary ecology’. We stand for inclusiveness and commitment to new voices in literature.
‘In poetry, if the stale old hierarchies – page v stage, artist v critic, establishment v avant-garde – are crumbling, it’s because of the work encouraged by Sabotage.’ — Susannah Herbert, director of the Forward Prizes and National Poetry Day.
VOTE HERE from 9 March (until 31st March)
