Community Organisation Award for Race, Religion & Faith
Bad Form is a print and digital literary review, by and about Black, Asian, and racialised community writers. Bad Form are, as far as we know, the only literary review magazine that is solely staffed by and focused on the work of Black, Asian, and racialised community authors. Formed in 2019 in response to the horrifying statistic published in The Bookseller that less than 100 books by British BAME authors were published in the UK. That statistic is even more shocking when you consider that almost a quarter of a million books were published that same year. This extraordinary organisation has published a quarterly issue since their inception, filled with literature essays, book reviews, short stories, and poetry from Black, Asian, and racialised community writers. Bad Form support a huge community of Black, Asian, and racialised community readers and writers excluded from the UK narrative.
