Congratulations, John!

Stroud Short Stories Organiser Wins Short Story Award

We interrupt our normal promotion of our events to congratulate Stroud Short Stories Organiser John Holland on winning the Dorset Fiction Award - an award for short stories with fewer than one thousand words. 

John's story 'Cows' - about two people in a car surrounded by a herd of cows - has won him First Prize, £500, and both online and print publication.

The judges' assessment is here

The story - and an interview - is here

Well done, John!


PS The next Stroud Short Stories event is on 11 November 2018. It will be an open theme. We will open for submissions at the beginning of September.
