Story Friday Invitation Feb 19

Story Fridays 2

Story Fridays is a popular, regular feature on the Bath arts scene.  We’re thrilled to have celebrated seven successful years of live story readings, and have an archive of tales if you want to listen again.  Story Fridays take place every other month.  Six writer-performers read short stories on a theme – or professional actors read their stories for them, if performance gives them the jitters.  We have an atmospheric vaulted venue at Burdall’s Yard in Bath.  We have fairy lights, theatricality, wine, bunting and above all, high quality stories, written to entertain, inspire and delight.  This is a spoken word event that has a keen audience who come because they love our stories.

Audience comments include:  Best Friday night guaranteed!  Excellent! Great evening, superb stories.  Enthralling – love the lighting, the venue, the stage, the stories!

A Word In Your Ear is always open for submissions for Story Fridays.  Stories should be 2,000 words maximum, written to the theme of the event.  But that’s a maximum – we’ve had some wonderful flash fiction in the past.  Writers need to be available to attend the Story Friday that they have submitted for, even if they choose not to perform.   Check out deadlines for submissions and future themes here: 

Story Fridays is not an open mic night.  Stories will be selected to make the best and most varied possible evening of entertainment for our audience.

Story Fridays is recorded and you can listen to some of the wonderful tales that we’ve enjoyed so far here:
