ELEVEN PITCH TITLES ON SPORTS BOOK AWARDS SHORTLIST
We’re thrilled to announce that 11 of our titles have been shortlisted for awards at The Sports Book Awards 2023, in association with The Sunday Times.
The New Women’s Sports Writing category is a new award for 2023, named in honour of Vikki Orvice – a brilliant sports journalist who did so much to champion women's sports writing. We’re delighted to have three of our books in the running for the new award, underscoring our commitment to championing female sports writing and women in sport.
Congratulations to our shortlisted authors. We’re keeping our fingers crossed for further success at the winners’ ceremony, which takes place at the Kia Oval on 24 May.
