Anna Selby shorlisted for Time Out award
UEA alumna Anna Selby has been shorlisted for the h.Club100 award, jointly sponsored by Time Out magazine and the Hospital Club to discover the most innovative and influential people in the British creative industries. She is nominated in the Publishing and Writing category alongside novelist Zadie Smith, Granta editor Ellah Alfrey and Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger, among others. Anna (pictured) graduated from the UEA Creative Writing (Poetry) MA in 2005, and last year organised the UK’s biggest poetry festival, Poetry Parnassus, while working as the Literature and Spoken Word Co-ordinator at the Southbank Centre in London. An anthology of the event, ‘The World Record’, co-edited with Neil Astley, was published earlier this year by Bloodaxe, and next year Salt will publish Anna’s debut pamphlet of poetry. Her work has previously been published in ‘Magma’, ‘Smith’s Knoll’, ‘The Rialto’ and the ‘Cinnamon Anthology of Young British Poets’, and she recently joined Writers’ Centre Norwich as a Programme Manager.
