Nov Fortnightly Round-Up III

Hello ShortStops folk,
We just had our 2nd birthday! As the lists on the site – of live lit, lit mags and short story collection authors – grow longer, and the blog is increasingly active and exciting, there are lots of reasons for celebration! Check out the most recent ones below.

If you’d like to review an event or a publication, drop me a line.

Happy reading, writing, listening and performing!
