Next Story Friday falls on April 1st, so we couldn’t resist. The theme is Fools and we’re hoping for some wonderful tales of fools and foolishness and maybe some gooseberries. Please send us your stories on Fools, under 2,000 words, deadline 21st March. Make sure you can come along on the 1st to Story Friday in Bath before you submit! There are full details of how to submit and any other stray rules here. We’re getting great audiences at the moment – we had to turn people away for our last event – so we will pay writers who are successful £10 for their stories. Enough to buy a pint to celebrate, anyway! If you can’t make Story Friday Fools, we’ve got another one coming up in June – the theme is Solstice. Story Friday is on 17th June, deadline for submissions is the 6th. For more information go to A Word In Your Ear.
