CALL FOR STORIES – LL SPECIAL EVENT: PARENT & CHILD Deadline Sunday 31 May / Event Tue 23 June

Liars’ League London & Leeds seek short stories themed on PARENT & CHILD for a special simultaneous charity event on Tuesday June 23 at The Peckham Pelican (London) and the Crowd of Favours (Leeds) in aid of The CATS Foundation, which is a charity funding research into the devastating genetic childhood diseases Tay-Sachs & Sandhoff.

We need five brilliant stories for this special theme, and as ever our winning writers will be rewarded with free entry, books and booze. Cheerful tales welcome (but not obligatory) and stories don’t have to be child-friendly, especially since the events are taking place in a pub … However we do ask that you don’t submit stories about incest, child abuse or dead/dying kids please (we know how your morbid writer minds work!)

What we’d love to see is any creative interpretation of the theme, which could include being a parent (or child), adult children, adopted or foster families, people who want kids, people who don’t, same-sex parents, kids rebelling against parents, parents rebelling against children, babysitters, divorced or one-parent families, unusual families (communes, kids raising siblings), substitute children, metaphorical or allegorical takes on the theme, sci-fi, fantasy, magical realism, humour, horror … you get the picture.

Send your 800-2000 word unpublished stories to liars@liarsleague.com by 11.59pm on Sun 31 May, and good luck!
