The People’s Choice Competition 

As part of the Willy Lit Fest, this live event is happening on Sunday 16 June 2024 at 12.00 Noon to 1.30 p.m. in the Williamstown Town Hall.

How it works…

Sixteen writers read a piece of poetry or prose (no longer than four minutes) which they have written. At the end, the audience votes by ballot on whose work they enjoyed the most — who is the most interesting/entertaining/ talented? There are prizes for the top-rated entries in each section – poetry and prose. And, of course, the award of the prestigious title.

The first Willy Lit Fest started with it, and it has become a much-loved feature of the festival.

Whether your reading style is hyper-active or cool and reflective (or somewhere in between), and whether or not you’ve read in public before, we’d love to hear from you. As the number of slots is limited, contestants need to sign up in advance over on the Willy Lit Fest website here.
