Stroud Short Stories 20th Event 'DISRUPTION' - part of the 2020 Stroud Book Festival
YouTube links here - Free and Unticketed
Grab a cup of tea or something stronger and click on the links to see the authors read their stories. I have placed the stories in an order which I think works well, but you can, of course, pick and choose as you wish.
This event is dedicated to the late Rick Vick - author, creative writing tutor, events organiser and SSS alumnus.
Many thanks to Dr Steve Goodwin of the Cotswold Playhouse/Amberley Music Makers for the videos; to Ali Bacon, my co-judge on this occasion; and to Stroud Book Festival for their support.
