On August 5th we open for submissions for our THEMED November 5th event. We close on September 23rd.

The theme this time is 'All You Need Is Love. Or Is It?'. This is to reflect the big Stroud Short Stories wedding this autumn.

The theme should be viewed as widely as possible. Not just romantic love but stories of obsession and relationships of all kind are welcome. And not necessarily just relationships between people. The writing can be straight or funny, cynical, ironic or dark.

The ten authors who read at our event on 5 November will be offered publication of their stories in our next anthology due 2018.

I am delighted to say that short story author Debbie Young will be judging with me this time. More info about the judges here.
