We made it to the darker recesses of 2017 and by way of celebration Talking Tales #16 is going to make a present of some laughs. It’s that special time of year again when the distant sound of sleigh bells is Rudolph and his mates going to the launch of the To Hull and Back Short Story Anthology 2017
- Unwrap prize winning stories of humour, comedy, the surreal and absurd, but most of all…THE FUNNY!
- Hear the stories placed first, second and third read by their very own authors – live, on the night, with words coming direct from their mouths to your ears.
- Smile, stroke and give thanks to the Santa Claus of this event: Christopher Fielden
- And still there is room for more: submissions open now!
Look under your bed (past the dust, the empty gin bottles and the John Lewis monster) and see if you have a story in your archives to share. Attach it to an e-mail (not a letter to Lapland) and note that submissions for Talking Tales#16 close on 1st December.
E-mail your story (to be read in less than 10 minutes) to: firstname.lastname@example.org
