live-and-work-in-stoke-newington-n163

To mark the start of our festival season, Litro Live! will be heading to the Stoke Newington Literary Festival on Sunday 8 June with a special event: the launch of Litro Represents, our new bespoke literary agency. We’re offering you the chance to join us and meet our writers, talk to our editors, and enjoy one of the UK’s newest literary festivals.

We have two weekend tickets to the Stoke Newington Literary Festival (worth £120) to give away courtesy of those fine folks in Stokey, to the best piece of flash fiction set in or around Stoke Newington. That’s right: we want you to turn the spotlight on Stokey. Why not imagine Edgar Allen Poe‘s time at Manor School, or Daniel Defoe‘s childhood on Church Street – or even tackle the area’s history of political radicalism?

Entries can be any genre, any theme, as long as they’re set in you-know-where. Maximum word limit is 800 words, and the winner will be published on the Litro website on Friday 6 June.

You should submit your entry via our Submittable page here.

The closing date for entries is Monday 2 June, 2014, and the winning entry will be chosen by the Litro editors. The winner will receive two weekend tickets to the Stoke Newington Literary Festival 2014, as well as publication on Litro.co.uk.

Weekend tickets allow entry to over 50 events in this year’s festival programme. Highlights of this year’s Stoke Newington Literary Festival include Ray Davies, Jonathan Meades, AL Kennedy, Mark Kermode, Seamus Milne, Tanya Byron, Claudia Roden, Lynn Barber, Ben Watt and Joanne Harris, as well as our own Litro Live! event on Sunday 8 June.
