THE STORY SESSIONS: Call out for stories to be read and authors to read

We’re planning our next run of The Story Sessions and we’re looking for authors to join in.

You might headline with a published story of no more than 2000 words, or try out our testbed with something new and get audience feedback (again 2000 words max), or just turn up with 100 words on theme for our Flash from the Floor audience participation slot.

we prioritise actual short stories, but will consider an extract from something longer.

We are still looking for a couple more stories for our May 21st Sci Fi evening, if anyone (especially female authors) has something suitable please get in touch. Deadline MAY 1st.

Our July 23rd evening is for that strange creature the ‘Young Adult‘. By my reckoning that’s anyone from 12 to 17 & 11/12ths. We will be having a reading from Alex Smith‘s novel (published the following day) Devilskein & Dearlove, but we’d  like some more work aimed at this age group, AND we’d like to hear from writers IN that age group. So if you are between 12 and 18 and you have a short story you would like to share, and you are happy to come to the event and read it yourself, ask your parent or guardian to get in touch. Deadline June 1st

Looking further ahead, in September we are looking for stories that feature animals: big, small, wild or domestic, real or fantastical: if you’ve got an animal at the centre of your story then we want to hear from you. (not too twee, please; and not gory!) Deadline August 1st
