Solstice Shorts 2015: Longest Night

Longest Night Moon logo

After the success of last year’s first ever Solstice Shorts Festival, Arachne Press is doing it again, although in a slightly shorter version.

The Winter Solstice (21st December ) is Short Story Day, and as this year it falls inconveniently on a Monday, we are having our event from 19:00 to 22:30 and have taken Longest Night as our theme, which our writers have interpreted widely.

winter, cold, extreme weather, floods,

night, loss,  danger,  lovers, regret, mourning, strangers, death, space, loneliness

midwinter, hope, ritual,  endings,  thresholds, solstice, renewal, community

but our midwinter is anything but bleak!

Stories  from

Cherry PottsDavid Mathews, David McVey, Frances GapperNeil BrosnanPauline Walker, Sarah EvansWendy Gill.
