How was 2018 for you?
We think it has been quite a year. We’d like to reflect on it and even celebrate it at Story Friday with stories that are inspired by events that happened in 2018. These events can be personal, local, national, international; they can be political, environmental, romantic, comic, tragic. We’d like a whole range of responses to what we’ve just experienced, as we usher in the new dawn of 2019.
Story Friday 2018 will be on 25th January 2019, deadline for submissions Monday 14th January. We’re looking for stories that are 2,000 words or fewer. (Full submission details here). Writers must be available to come to Bath for the event. If you’d rather not read, we have wonderful actors who can read your story for you.
!! STORY FRIDAY CHALLENGE !!
January’s Story Friday is all about events that have just happened, so for this Story Friday we have a special challenge.
As well as the submissions about 2018, for the first time we want to include ONE special story, inspired by a NEWS story the week before Story Friday! (ie between 18th and 24th January). Deadline is Thursday midday 24th January, the day before Story Friday. Max word count is 1,000 words. You are very welcome to submit both to Story Friday 2018 AND to the Challenge. The chosen story will be read by an actor at Story Friday.
