New Short Stories competition 2016

It’s been a while. We’re going back to a simpler time when the first prize was an inscribed mug. Supported by Liars' League. Closing date for entries will be August 31st. All the details are on our Submittable page. Looking forward to reading for Willesden Herald: New Short Stories 9.

We are delighted to announce that this year's story competition is supported by the mighty Liars' League, the literary spoken word event that is taking the world by storm, after starting in London, and now with cousins in Hong Kong, New York and other cities near and far. For the past several years, the Liars' League company have provided the readings at the Willesden Herald results and anthology launch events, which has made them rather wonderful nights. It's a unique delight for a writer to hear her or his words brought to life by professional actors in front of a live audience. This is one of the things that makes our short story competition so special.
