f38e1137-f417-4702-a242-9e96fb3e20e71Stroud Short Stories is a non-profit making short story event held twice a year in Stroud, Gloucestershire, UK. Our aim is to showcase and promote contemporary Gloucestershire and South Gloucestershire writing and writers. We’ve been going since 2011 and our latest event was our 16th. These days we sell out every time, so tickets are only available in advance from our venue, the SVA in Stroud. Ten authors read a story selected by the SSS judges from the 100 or so submitted each time.

The next event, our 17th, will be on Sunday 11 November 2018 and is part of the Stroud Book Festival. We are now open for submissions and will be until until the end of Sunday 14 October. 

All the information you need is on our website –

The SSS organiser is short fiction writer John Holland
