Our next event - 10 Nov 2019 + Dates for your Diary + New Judge + New Start Time

Our 19th event will be on Sunday 10 November 2019 at the Cotswold Playhouse in Stroud. It will start earlier than usual - at 7.30 (doors 7.00).

This event is part of the Stroud Book Festival, so if you want to read at the Festival you know what you have to do...

We will open for submissions (free as usual!!) on Sunday 18 August and close on Sunday 29 September.

It will be an open theme this time. Let your imagination be your guide and write about anything you like - so long as it's a short story up to 1,500 words.

As usual we will select ten stories to be read by their Gloucestershire/South Gloucestershire-based authors at our event.

I will have a new co-judge this time. The brilliant short story author Chloe Turner, who has read four times at SSS, will be making the decisions with me. Chloe's first collection of stories Witches Sail in Eggshells, has just been published by Reflex Press. More info on the judges here.

Check out the Rules and How to Submit here.

Don't miss a thing about submitting or buying tickets by subscribing to SSS newsletters here.

We can't wait for August when we can start reading your stories.

Tickets will go on sale from Friday 11 October on the Cotswold Playhouse website.
