Invitation to Willesden on a spring evening



8 to 10 pm, Thursday 12 April 2012 at Willesden Green Library Centre, 95 High Road, London NW10 2SF.

Before we tell you which story has won the priceless Willesden Herald mug inscribed "Willesden Short Story Prize 2012" and hand over the prizes for winner and two equal runners up, we're going to subject you to refreshments, brilliant actors, brilliant words and the opening of an envelope. A big vote of thanks to the great Roddy Doyle for judging.

We will be joined once again by actors from the mighty Liars' League, returning after a highly successful year to give you a flavour of the new stories we've discovered this time. Visit their website to find out all about them and where you can see them next.

There will be copies of "Willesden Herald: New Short Stories 6" on the night, printers willing. Thanks to our redoubtable 33 supporters on Kickstarter for enabling this publication. We are also indebted to the artist Stratos Fountoulis for creating the cover.

All this is thanks to the kind and generous sponsorship of the event by Willesden Green Writers' Group.

Last year's results event went so well that I hope we can live up to it. To see what it was like last time, follow this link. If we fail to live up to that, there is always the Rising Sun around the corner, where sorrows can be drowned or pleasures toasted. Here's to Toasted Pleasures.
