Really looking forward to this: a night dedicated to the sometimes neglected short story! I’m going to be reading a selection of flash, including The Map, which was recently shortlisted by the Biscuit International Short Story Competition.
WORDSOUP SHORT-STORY NIGHT:
Our regular live lit night Word Soup will be a Short Story Night on
Tuesday 16th November, and we have a fantastic line-up of Short Story
The headline act is short story writer Zoe Lambert, published by Comma
Press, a not-for-profit publishing initiative dedicated to promoting new
fiction and poetry, with an emphasis on the short story.
Joining Zoe for Word Soup’s Short Story Night will be the short-story
talents of Philip Burton, Mollie Baxter, Stephen Jansen, and Catie
The regular Open Mic slot will of course be running – so don’t forget to
bring a 3-minute piece of your own!
Rae Morris (likened to a young Alanis Morissette by Ark Magazine) will
be putting the cherry on the top with a fabulous music set.
Word Soup Short Story Night at The Continental, South Meadow Lane,
Preston on Tuesday 16th November from 8pm, £3.00 on the door for an
evening of priceless entertainment.
