Maggie Gee to judge the 2011 short story competition

Buy from Guardian bookshop
We are pleased and honoured to announce that local literary heroine Maggie Gee has agreed to choose the winning entry in the next short story competition. Somebody at the Herald must have done something good in a previous life has to be the only possible explanation.

Here is Maggie Gee's page on the British Council's Contemp-orary Writers website. If that doesn't impress you, most likely nothing will. :) <-[WH's first ever smiley. Ed] Her latest book is a memoir, My Animal Life (Guardian review). Here is Maggie Gee's page on Amazon.

Scroll down the right to see a link to The Blue (Amazon Associates link), if you would like to find out the judge's kind of short story. The submission window (a sort of hatch with a winch at first floor level on Herald House), will open in September.

The international Willesden Herald short story competition is proud to be supported by Willesden Green Writers' Group:
