The Whole Story, London – LIVE

coming soon!

The Whole Story is a new poetry, prose and music night run by Rachel Piercey and Will PittamEvery fourth Friday of the month, we are inviting artists whose work we want to shout about, to share in a friendly salon atmosphere – please come and join us! You can follow us on Twitter @TheWholeStoryCG and visit our page at The Poetry Cafe website.

Our approach to finding writers includes reading lit mags and books published by small presses. When it comes to prose, we’re particularly fond of the short story form, and since there are not many opportunities to perform short fiction in full, where possible we want to give writers the chance to read an entire short story at our event. If you’re visiting ShortStops then chances are you’re a writer of short fiction – perhaps you’ve been published in lit mags or with an indie press. If so, and you’re interested in reading at The Whole Story, please message us at with links to your work. We’re also very open to recommendations of writers whose work you admire!
