Our next MIRLive takes place on March 6th at the Harrison, 28 Harrison Street, King’s Cross, WC1H 8JF. This event will be headlined by BBC Short Story Award Winner, K J Orr, and will be an International Women’s Day Special. We will be accepting submissions from all genders but work should be focussed on or inspired by women. The deadline for submissions is February 23rd.
K J Orr is the author of the short story collection Light Box, and was the winner of the BBC National Short Story Award 2016. Her work has appeared in publications including the Guardian, the Irish Times, the Dublin Review, the White Review and Best British Short Stories, and been broadcast on BBC Radio 4. Light Box is shortlisted for the Republic of Consciousness Prize.
Selected work will be read at the next event.
If your work is selected, you will be asked to provide a brief biography (up to 100) words, to include on a handout and, subject to the author’s permission, a podcast of the reading may be made available on the website. Copyright remains with the individual author.
