Short story competition results event 2011

Latest: Willesden 7 April 2011: Results announced

23 March 2011: Delighted to announce that we will be teaming up with the wonderful Liars' League who will read extracts from as many of the short-listed stories as we can fit in before the results. Also lucky and pleased that Sam Taradash has agreed to be MC for the evening.

Willesden Green Library Centre
98 Willesden High Road, London NW10
8 pm - 10 pm, Thursday, 7 April

Join acclaimed author Maggie Gee for an evening to celebrate the short story and discover who has taken the one-off inscribed mug and first prize in the international Willesden Herald short story competition 2011, supported by Willesden Green Writers' Group. If the printers do their bit then copies of the anthology of the short-listed stories should be on hand. Refreshments will be provided.

Last year's winner Wena Poon went on to have her novel "Alex y Robert" serialised on BBC Radio 4's Book at Bedtime nightly for two weeks. Jo Lloyd who won the previous year, her first ever win for her writing, went on to win the Asham Award in the same year for another story. It is not an exaggeration to say that the list of impressive credits, novels and collections for previous short-listed writers is too long to recount here.

It should be a wonderful evening. I think I speak for everyone at the Willesden Herald when I say I am looking forward to seeing lots of friends, writers and readers and hearing professional actors read from some of the best stories of 2011. See you there. (Steve Moran)
