We want your stories! We are now open for your submissions to our next event on Sunday 11 November 2018.

We are now open for submissions to our 17th event - to be held on Sunday 11 November 2018. We close at the end of Sunday 14 October. 

There is no theme this time, so any style, any subject, any genre or no genre. As long as it's a short work of fiction, of course!

As ever it's free to submit and we accept both published and unpublished stories from Gloucestershire and South Gloucs writers. 

Ten authors will read their work to a capacity audience of 70 short story lovers at 8pm on Sunday 11 November at the SVA in John Street, Stroud, GL5 2HA. This event is part of the Stroud Book Festival.

If you want an idea of what kind of stories we like (and we do like lots of different styles) listen to the authors reading their work at previous events here

TIP! - Remember it's a live lit event. Complex multi-dimensional stories and stories with many voices and lots of dialogue are not best suited to a live reading.

I am delighted to have inveigled the brilliant author and publishing guru Debbie Young to judge with me for the third time. Check out more info about the judges using the tab above or here.

We guarantee that all stories are read by both judges. We love reading your stories.
