Northern Fiction Alliance triumph at 2018 Northern Soul Awards

Last night saw two members of the NFA scoop top prizes at the annual Northern Soul Awards, with Liverpool-based Dead Ink Books winning Northern Publisher of the year, and Sheffield-based And Other Stories winning Small Business of the Year.

Dead Ink succeed Comma as Northern Publisher of the year after their victory in 2017. Dead Ink also saw off stiff competition in the category from fellow NFA pressed Bluemoose Books and And Other Stories, as well as fantastic indies Carcanet, Flaphack, Nightjar and Big issue North.

Last night's ceremony was held in the stunning surroundings of the nearly 600-year-old Manchester Cathedral.

Huge congrats to all the shortlisted publishers, plus the teams at Dead Ink and And Other Stories on their victories!
