I hate asking people for money, but at least Crowd funding can be fun, and the generosity of our authors in coming up with novel rewards is a constant pleasure.
We hope to announce our final line up of stories and poems tomorrow, but in the mean time…
This is a fast crowd fund, less than a fortnight to go already, so please, if you are thinking of supporting this year’s Solstice Shorts, Noon, don’t dawdle! We didn’t try to get arts council funding this year (to be honest still recovering from last year’s epic fundraising) so the festival is modest, locally funded as far as possible, and short – Noon, after all, despite how long it takes a clock to strike 12, is only a second long, blink and you missed it. So please don’t blink!
Because we are on 6 sites (Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Carlisle, Ynys Mon, London and Cork) there will still be a book, which will be published on 21st March – for the spring equinox, and this is one of the rewards:
If you would like to preorder a copy of this book, or buy one of the previous solstice shorts books
head over to the crowd fund on kickstarter.
