Our next event 'WILD' will be on Sunday 7 November 2021 - Submissions open on Sunday 8 August

While you can still view the videos from our 10th Birthday event 'Sharp Stars And Old Magic & Other Stories' below or here, it's time to be thinking about our next event. 

The theme for our 22nd event will be 'WILD' and the event is part of the 2021 Stroud Book Festival.

It will take place at the Cotswold Playhouse, Parliament Street in Stroud at 7.30pm on Sunday 7 November 2021.(Should Covid persist/return then the event will be on YouTube). 

Submissions open on Sunday 8 August and close on Sunday 19 September. 

My co-judge on this occasion will be short story author, novelist, blogger, festival organiser and self-publishing guru Debbie Young. More info on the judges here.

Think about the theme WILD! as widely as possible - all aspects of nature, wildlife, foraging/wild food, the wild west, weather, seas, parties, nights out, singing, dancing, craziness, passion, affairs, out of control emotions, anger, enthusiasm, uncivilised behaviour, etc etc

The Rules and How to Submit are here.

Tickets for the event, priced at £9, will be available from the Cotswold Playhouse website from Friday 8 October.
