Talking Tales #21 – 8th December – Bristol

Big laughs, big stories, small stories.

Talking Tales #21 is delighted to feature the launch of the To_Hull_And_Back_2018_Anthology_front_coverTo Hull and Back humorous short story anthology 2018.

All hail Christopher Fielden.

Many of the authors will be reading their listed and commended stories – including the winner Mr (nostrangertoTalkingTales) John Holland. You’ll laugh and there are some unexpected turns in some big stories to listen to as well.

But Stokes Croft Writers want more. There’s room for a couple of shorter stories too so why not submit and be in with a chance of being part of this brilliant night. Something around the 500 word mark would be ideal.

Submissions for Talking Tales#21 close on Friday 30th November.                            

E-mail your story to: stokescroftwriters@gmail.com

Event details – are stupendously straight-forward:

…venue:    Left Bank, 128 Cheltenham Rd, Bristol, BS6 5RW

…time:       6.30pm on Saturday 8th December 2018.

…join-in:    the ‘finish the lines‘ competition – win a badge.

We often smile in adverbs (supportively, happily, proudly) at new writer-performers.

Talking Tales #16 – 9th December – Bristol

We made it to the darker recesses of 2017 and by way of celebration  Talking Tales #16 is going to make a present of some laughs. It’s that special time of year again when the distant sound of sleigh bells is Rudolph and his mates going to the launch of the To Hull and Back Short Story Anthology 2017

  • Unwrap prize winning stories of humour, comedy, the surreal and absurd, but most of all…THE FUNNY!
  • Hear the stories placed first, second and third read by their very own authors – live, on the night, with words coming direct from their mouths to your ears.
  • Smile, stroke and give thanks to the Santa Claus of this event: Christopher Fielden
  • And still there is room for more: submissions open now!

Look under your bed (past the dust, the empty gin bottles and the John Lewis monster) and see if you have a story in your archives to share. Attach it to an e-mail (not a letter to Lapland) and note that submissions for Talking Tales#16 close on 1st December.
