"A prestigious panel of judges has been announced for the world’s most valuable prize for a single short story. The Sunday Times EFG Short Story Award is worth £30,000 to the winning author. This year’s judging panel will comprise novelist, comic, critic and former Man Booker judge David Baddiel, Booker shortlisted novelist and short story writer Sarah Hall, internationally acclaimed Turkish writer Elif Shafak and Sunday Times chief literary critic and former Man Booker Chair Professor John Carey.

I love that my new desk position at work means that nobody can see my computer screen as it makes sneaky buying of Damo tickets is so much easier to do! I'm booked!

Happy for those who can go! as usual, we'd love to hear all about it after! yes please! just so this topic doesn't become people saying they are going, and then not telling the rest of us about it after, that is just cruel! lol!

Sympathise with those who can't ... as you know I am always on the outside looking in on these things, but c'est la vie, we shall continue to be happy for others and live vicariously throught their stories grouphug

So happy that Damien seems to be now firmly establised as one of WordTheatre's top talents, he has performed with them now since 2012, go Damien!

Foyles is a big shop and the most famous (possibly also the oldest?) in London. I suspect this is in a special area or room...

I'm sorry Su, I know it's a terrible thing I'm 'forcing' you to do. Please forgive me.
