ShortStops is three years’ old this month! Happy Birthday to us, and Happy National Short Story Week! Frankly, we’re pretty busy because the short story scene in the UK & Ireland is nothing if not booming, flourishing, blossoming, we have trouble keeping up! We have 199 lit mags on our list, and 37 live events – and it’s growing! This is a good time to thank all the tireless and dedicated editors of lit mags, organisers of live lit events and competitions, publishers of short story collections, teachers and facilitators of workshops – and also all the writers who send your stories out into the world, and all the readers and audience members, each a vital part of the short story ecosystem. Keep up the good work!
Issue 10 of Short Fiction is out now. Shoreline of Infinity would like you to send your finest science fiction short story. The Nottingham Review has published its first book, Dots by Santino Prinzi, and the fifth issue of The A3 Review is here.
