Congratulations to Nelson Ball for winning the 2016 bpNichol Chapbook Award for Small Waterways, a book I am deeply proud to have published through Apt. 9 Press in 2015. Congratulations also to Marilyn Irwin and Lillian Nećakov for being shortlisted for the same award for their books published by Apt. 9! Congratulations also to Klara Du Plessis and Anstruther Press, and Christine Stewart and Nomados Literary Publishers for their books on the shortlist, too. We are proud to be listed in such fine company.
Nelson’s win is the second time Apt. 9 has published the winner of the award, after Claudia Coutu Radmore’s win in 2011 for Accidentals.
