Stroud Short Stories (1)

This Stroud Short Stories event is special for a number of reasons. As well as the fact that it takes place exclusively on YouTube for the first time and is part of Stroud Book Festival, it’s also the 20th event since SSS was founded in 2011. Even more importantly, it’s dedicated to the late Rick Vick – local author, writing tutor, events organiser and SSS mainstay – who sadly died in late 2019.

The theme is DISRUPTION. As usual, you will hear ten stories read by their authors, all of whom are from Gloucestershire. These stories were chosen from the 119 submitted by 90 Gloucestershire authors. The brilliant stories selected are by Robin Booth, Stephen Connolly, Hannah Glickstein, Claire Harrison, Emma Kernahan, Geoff Mead, Simon Piney, Mark Rutterford, Sharon Webster and Steve Wheeler. As if it were a live event, organiser John Holland has placed the stories in the order he thinks works best, but of course on YouTube you can pick and choose as you wish.

SSS will open for submissions again at the end of January 2021, for an open-themed event on Sunday 9 May at the Cotswold Playhouse.

Introduced by: John Holland
