Stroud Short Stories May 2018

On May 20th, I was lucky enough to read again at the brilliant Stroud Short Stories event for Gloucestershire writers. Videos of the readers are on the website here.

There is a video of me reading my story, The Journey To Everywhere. on Stroud Community TV

It was fantastic to meet up with writer friends again and listen to such an entertaining variety of stories. As always, tickets quickly sold out and the audience gave the readers a warm and enthusiastic response. There is something special about reading your work aloud, particularly when the listeners laugh in all the right places!

Thank you so much to the magnificent John Holland and Ali Bacon, for reading and judging the stories, and also for working so hard to make the event such a success.

Later this year there will be a Stroud Short Stories anthology which includes the stories in every event from November 2015.

The next Stroud Short Stories event, on November 11th, will be part of the Stroud Book Festival.
