The East Midlands Book Award (EMBA) is accepting nominations from local, national and international publishers of East Midlands Writers (this covers Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire and Rutland). The writer needs to have lived in the East Midlands during the period of publication.
The categories are Fiction, Creative Non-Fiction and Poetry and the work can be aimed at children and young people. There is a panel of judges who will put together a short list which is then promoted through book shops, libraries and reading groups.
