Writers Unchained of Bristol are delighted to be open for submissions once more for our second 2018 Story Sunday event on Sunday October 7th when ten writers will be invited to take to the Southbank stage in Bedminster to enthral us with their talent.
Our theme this time is The Fall  which you may interpret any way you like.

If you’d like to send a story for our consideration, please observe the following:

  • wordcount 500 – 1500 – complete stories please, no extracts
  • your story can be published or unpublished as long as you have the right to read it out
  • deadline midnight Sunday September 23rd. 
  • only submit if you can read on Sunday October 7th between 7.30 and 9.30 pm at Southbank Club, Dean Lane, Bedminster, Bristol BS3 1DB. We’ll let you know if you’ve been chosen around a week beforehand.
  • email your submission to writersunchained at gmail.com with ‘The Fall’ in the subject line
  • attach the story as a Word doc (or docx) rather than in the body of the email. Make sure you include your own name, the title and the wordcount with the text

We think this should cover everything, but if you have any questions we suggest you contact us via Twitter @bww_unchained or email writersunchained at gmail.com with ”Story Sunday query’ in the subject line.

Hoping to hear from you soon!

bristollitfest16If you feel the need for something more familiar, Mark Lewis offers boiled sweets (but not as you know them) and you can share an apocalyptic cigarette with Kevlin Henney. Or if far out really is your thing, we have D. S. Ketleby with an avian family saga.

We hope we have you hooked!
