In the Beginning

Dear potential Liars, 

I'd like to invite you to a new live literary event featuring professional and aspiring thespians reading original short stories by Hong Kong based writers. The event will take place every month (hopefully) in a Hong Kong location and will bring together the most talented and visionary creatives in the city. The first event will take place in early 2013. 
In short: 

Writers write, actors read, audience listens, everybody wins.

We're looking for writers and actors to join the League.

Actors - 
Auditions will begin shortly. To sign up, please email liarsleaguehk@gmail.com with a short biography and contact details (numbers help). Check here for what we're looking for.

Writers - 
Start submitting! The theme for the first Liars' League is 'He & She' which can be interpreted in any creative way you like. Deadline is January 11. Submissions should be between 800 - 1200 words and in the genre of prose short story. No poetry or scripts please. Novel extracts will also be accepted if they work as stand-alone pieces. Please do not write your name on the submitted documents; we like to judge anonymously. Check here for the nitty -gritty details.

For tips, read veteran London Liar Niall Boyce's piece on what works.

Everybody else - 
We're looking for a cameraman (to record the event), web-savvy techies and groupies. 
We'll keep you updated over the coming weeks about exciting new developments and confirmed dates. 

Over and out, 

Liars' League
