"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 now closed for submissions to our 24 April 2016 event. Ticket info below!

Thank you to everyone who sent us their stories. The response has been wonderful. 95 stories were submitted by 70 authors. They have been passed on to our judges, Nimue Brown and SSS organiser John Holland. The titles of the ten stories selected to be read by their authors will be announced as soon as possible and definitely by 8 April.
The event will not be recorded so please do come along.
Tickets for the event are only available online in advance from the SVA website
We always sell out so you may have to move quite quickly. The event is for people aged 16 and over. Tickets are priced at £7. This is an increase on last year reflecting additional financial support for our venue, the SVA. Please refer any tickets enquiries to the SVA Tel 01453 751440.
