This year’s Solstice Shorts Festival (21st December 2018) will again be a multi-site affair, and again will last only 45 minutes. But this time will happen at exactly the same time – Noon.
At the moment we are looking at events in Edinburgh, Ynys Mon (Anglesey), London and Evesham (Gloucestershire).
We are looking for SHORT stories no more than 1000 words, shorter is better, (think flash not vignette – something needs to happen!) and poems, also short – up to 40 lines, in English, Welsh or Scots/Gaelic (with a translation please!) for performance. Other sites may be added.
We are starting this process with no funding, but hope we may have some in time to allow us to pay actors to perform, but if not, we’ll need you to be able to get to one of these sites to read.
Celebrate the shortest day of the year by sending us a story or poem on the theme of NOON.
A pamphlet (or a very slender book!) of the stories and poems chosen for performance will be produced. Royalties will be paid, together with at least one copy of the book to each successful writer.
Writers who are successful in being included in a performance/ anthology are subsequently invited to submit a collection/novel for consideration.
submission via Submittable only (this is so we don’t lose your submission, and so multiple people can review your work as simply as possible.)
