I love short stories. I love reading them, writing them and watching them being read by their authors. I work at Word Factory short story salon in London and love the short story community it has been a beacon for.
I Co-Founded the London Short Story Festival with Spread the Word and that was like diving into a short story pool and swimming in them for a few days.
The Bristol Short Story Prize asked me to pick my best collections of this year – a very difficult thing to do – and I made some choices and a hot pick for next year. You can see my picks and the those of some fantastic writers and short story champions here. There’s 5 short posts – check them out for top picks.
