National Short Story Week
National Short Story Week is an annual awareness event. Its aim is to focus the attentions of the public and the media on the short story and short story writers, publishers and events. It is intended as a framework for promoting literary events and publications at a national and local level.
It's aims are:
1) to get more people reading and listening to short stories
2) to get more people writing short stories
3) to develop creative and commercial opportunities for individuals and organisations involved in the short story form.
The website is very informative with lots of stuff to listen to, download etc. and loads of opportunities to get involved. Patron is the lovely Katie Fforde. Read what she has to say here.
