Stroud Short Stories Competition
7th February 2017
It’s been called “Possibly the best short story event in the South West” (Cheltenham LitFest programme) and in part that’s due to past contributions from UoG Creative Writing students, including alumni Phil Bowne and Rod Griffiths, both of whom were selected by the judges to read at the hugely popular event, which takes place out in (you guessed it) Stroud, at Stroud Valleys Artspace.
The next submission window opens shortly, on February 26th and you have until April to get something in. It’s open-themed, with a max length of 1,500-words, and open only to writers with a Gloucestershire or a South Gloucestershire connection (which means you, Team UoG). So if you’ve got something from one of your assessments that fits the bill, why not try your luck? Full contest details and submission guidelines are available here.
