Our wonderfully supportive and encouraging panel of judges include poet and filmmaker Sunnah Khan, member of 4 BROWN GIRLS WHO WRITE poetry collective; writer Noren Haq, whose short story features in the recent anthology A made in heaven: Muslim women write about love and desire;  and GWL’s own Librarian, Wendy Kirk.

Winners will be announced on the night and prizes include a one-to-one mentoring session with one of our judges and a selection of covetable books!

This is one of our “attend” sessions this Autumn – sit back, relax and hear some bold and brave new writing!
