Thank you + Ticket Information + New Anthology

A HUGE thank you to everyone who submitted a story or two for our 11 November event. Submissions have now closed. 85 writers from Gloucs and South Gloucs submitted a total of 112 stories. That's the third highest number in our seven year history. Brilliant response. Thank you again.

We will publish the names of the ten authors and stories we have chosen as soon as possible.

Ticket Information

Tickets for the Sunday 11 November event will be on sale from the website of the venue, the SVA (Stroud Valleys Artspace), John Street, Stroud, GL5 2HA on Tuesday 23 October -

Tickets (available only in advance) are £8.00 - including the SVA booking charge.

Our last eleven events have all sold out in advance, the last one in just 5 days, so best not to tarry.

Please note that SSS does not sell the tickets. All ticket enquiries to the SVA please.

The event starts at 8.00pm (doors 7.30) and ends around 10.15. There is a bar.

Our New Anthology

You can buy the brand new Stroud Short Stories Anthology Volume Two 2015-2108 from local bookshops and from Amazon

The anthology has 57 stories by 45 Gloucestershire authors from the six SSS events which took place from November 2015 to May 2018. I have edited it and Stroud Short Stories has published it. The paperback is priced at £10.

Local stockists are The Stroud Bookshop, Trading Post in Stroud, The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop in Nailsworth and The Suffolk Anthology Bookshop in Cheltenham.

It's available from Amazon in paperback (£10) and eBook (£2.99) formats.

More information about the authors in the anthology and the stockists is here.

If anyone fancies providing a book review for the Amazon page that would be really helpful. You don't need to have bought your copy via Amazon to do this. Thank you.
