The Festival wouldn’t be complete without our partners Stroud Short Stories, whose 22nd event will be held on 7 November at the Cotswold Playhouse.

This time the theme is WILD!

Writers from across Gloucestershire submit their stories twice a year to SSS Organiser/Editor John Holland. Ten stories are selected – from the hundred or so submitted – to be read by their authors, who may be professional writers, skilled amateurs or complete beginners.

John’s co-judge for this event is author, blogger and self-publishing guru, Debbie Young.

Proclaimed by the Cheltenham Literature Festival as “possibly the best short story event in the South West”, SSS’s considerable reputation is based on the unfailingly high quality of the stories read at its events.

The last 14 live events all sold out in advance, so book early to avoid disappointment.

Submissions for this event closed at the end of Sunday 19 September. You can find more information here.

This event will not be recorded.
