"Possibly the best short story event in the South West" (Cheltenham LitFest), Stroud Short Stories is a short story live lit event held twice-yearly in Stroud. Our aim is to encourage and promote contemporary short story writing in Gloucestershire. We are independent and non-profit making. SSS is run by short fiction author John Holland - www.johnhollandwrites.com
Stroud Short Stories is ready with a red rose between its teeth for the 12th of February and our first themed event "Love and Other Blows of Fate". We have ten selected authors eager to share their tales of love and loss, passion and woe. With celebrity gardeners, steam-trains and pineapple chunks included. Our headliner is Jane Bailey, author of Tommy Glover's Sketch of Heaven.
The event starts at 8pm and takes place at Stroud Valleys Artspace.
