Short Story September kicks off this weekend
A new campaign to get everyone writing short stories launches this weekend (September 1st, 2018)
Short Story September is a month-long initiative set up by independent press, Dahlia Publishing. The aim of the project is to celebrate the short story form as well as raise the profile of British short story writers.
Writers can follow the campaign via a dedicated blog which will inspire writers through daily prompts and a showcase of writing by authors with published collections. Authors featured during the campaign include BBC National Short Story Award Winner, Sarah Hall, Edge-Hill shortlisted, Leone Ross and rising stars, such as CG Menon.
There is also the chance to win some fantastic prizes in a weekly competition supported by generous partners including The Word Factory, Bristol Short Story Prize and Comma Press.
Writers are invited to sign up on the website http://shortstoryseptember.co.uk/ and join the conversation on Twitter @dahliabooks using the hashtag #ShortStorySept
