18-21 June 2015
Co-founded in 2014 by Spread the Word and Paul McVeigh, The London Short Story Festival has celebrated and profiled the range, diversity and variety in contemporary short story writing. For 2016, the Festival will be taking a break as Spread the Word celebrates its 21st Birthday. We will continue to support and promote short story writers through our London Short Story Prize, our online Flight Journal and our regular programme of workshops and masterclasses.
During this year we will be working with co-founder Paul McVeigh and our partners The Word Factory and Waterstones Piccadilly to build on what the Festival has achieved so far with a view to re-launching in 2017.
We would like to thank all the writers, publishers, partners, audiences and volunteers who have supported and participated in the Festival over the past couple of years – for your commitment to and passion for the short story – and we look forward to working with and seeing you soon.
