Yvonne said: “This is great news for culture in Preston and the North West. We’re thrilled to be shortlisted.

“Deerhart celebrates our relationship with nature, but it also recognises that the changes that human beings have made to our environment are irreversible. It’s a real privilege to be recognised for creating art and literature that tackles these issues.”

Deerhart is listed in the best wildcard category at the Saboteur indie literature awards.

The category is open to public voting so Yvonne is hoping to see Prestonians placing their votes via the Saboteur awards website, go to category 12.
