Check out the 2018 Calendar from here LISP.

LISP judges are looking for strong and unique voices, check out the interviews with the judges on the website.

‘Originality must come from other resources: from one’s own voice, personality, character.’ Luis Pizarro, LISP judge.

‘Given that the story can only be 300 words, I am looking for something beyond the ephemeral, a story that will make an impression.’ James Kirchick, LISP judge.

‘LISP is based on creating a great community and, of course, all the writers who attend the competition will definitely be a part of this network. However, winners are winners, and they will have the greatest advantage. First of all, the prize and publication, and when you win a competition, it means that your pen has been recognised, which is a great feature for any writer. Not only while trying to reach agents or publishers, but also the personal satisfaction is priceless. Especially for young writers, it’s a way to build confidence.

As an award winner, I can also say that it helps you to improve. Now you see that you can write things that others appreciate as well, which encourages you to be even bolder.’ Ozge Gozturk, LISP founder.

Free Event – The Special Relationship hosts Comma Press & Croatian Writers Society

As part of the London Book Fair, The Special Relationship is heading west (pray for us) to host a night of short fiction from Comma Press and the Croatian Writers Society authors.

7:30pm on Tuesday April 8 at The Grove Bar & Restaurant (83 Hammersmith Grove, W6 0NQ).

There will be a few short reading from amazing people such as Belfast-born LUCY CALDWELL who has won more prizes than Jesus and the two authors who keep vying for the title of the greatest living Croatian short story writer, EDO POPOVIĆ and ROMAN SIMIĆ BODROŽIĆ.

But, don’t be fooled. It’s really just a great party with wine and Croatian nibbles and room full of people who love short fiction.

All that and it’s FREE! But you should RSVP so you get a place.
