2012 Literary Honors Award

Join me on November 16th at the Everleigh Social Club for the third annual Naked Girls Reading Literary Honors Award Gala where myself and Greta Layne will be awarding a cash prize for excellence to an emerging writer.

We received submissions from all over the world and judges have finally made their decisions.  This is a night that is not to be missed.  Witness history as a burgeoning young writer gets one of the most coveted prizes in the literary world, at least the naked literary world.
