Stroud Short Stories is an independent not-for-profit live lit event held twice a year in Stroud, Gloucestershire, UK.
Our aim is to encourage, showcase and promote contemporary Gloucestershire and South Gloucestershire short story writing and writers. We’ve been going since 2011 and our next event will be our 20th.
At each event ten authors read a story selected by the SSS judges from the 100 or so submitted each time.
The next event, dedicated to Stroud writer Rick Vick, will be on Sunday 19 April 2020 at the Cotswold Playhouse, Parliament Street, Stroud, GL5 1LW at 7.30pm (doors 7.00).
The theme for this event is DISRUPTION and we are currently open for submissions from Gloucestershire and South Gloucestershire writers. We close at the end of Sunday 8 March.
TICKETS priced at £8 are available from the Cotswold Playhouse website from 20 March 2020.
The SSS organiser is short fiction writer John Holland
