Liars' League is a themed short fiction performance night based in central London (UK), where the stories are written by emerging authors, read by professional actors, and watched by a literature-loving crowd. Liars' League stories have been broadcast on BBC Radio 4, published in award-winning print anthologies by our partners Arachne Press, and performed at festivals and events up and down the UK, and our alumni have gone on to write bestselling novels in the UK and US. So submit your very best work to us (this goes double if you're female, as only about 1/3 of our submissions come from women): we really want to read your stories!
Important: Demographic restrictions may vary. Check current theme calendar for details.
