It’s been our biggest year in the five years our free short fiction magazine has been in print. We’ve got more stockists than ever, more readers than ever, you can now subscribe to Open Pen, and we’ve published The Open Pen Anthology. So we’re left pinching ourselves that on top of all that, we’ve been nominated in two categories in the 2016 Saboteur Awards. ‘Best Magazine‘ and ‘Best Anthology‘. If you nominated us in these two categories, we heartily thank you. Back up those nominations with two votes and our hearts will swell thrice over.
You’ll notice a few other categories too. Personally, we fancy Liars’ League for ‘Best Regular Spoken Word’ night and Nothing here is wild, everything is open by Tania Hershman for ‘Best Poetry Pamphlet’. Check both of those out if you get a chance.
