The special section, dedicated to London Writers Cafe members will appear in Issue Seven of Open Pen, out in just a couple of weeks, in time for Open Pen and London Writers’ Cafe’s joint event OUTWORD (see here for tickets). London Writers’ Cafe member Tom will be on hand to read his winning story, The Three Essential Lessons, and, no doubt, to share in a drink or two with many of the publishers, writers and literary enthusiasts in attendance.
More information on Issue Seven is to follow; other winning authors yet to be announced. With more submissions received than ever before, it’s been a real pleasure/ordeal in picking out the very best of so many excellent works of fiction. The wonderful thing about running this magazine is that we get to see just how talented and fertile this city is. A privilege. So congratulations to Tom Wood, and thanks to all the London Writers’ Cafe members who took the time to submit their work.
