Opportunity for Writers: Story Shop

Story Shop gives new and emerging writers who live or work in Edinburgh the chance to showcase their work at the Edinburgh International Book Festival. Successful applicants will be given a ten minute slot to read two short pieces of flash fiction or one short story to an audience in the Book Festival’s Bookshop. More information about this exciting UNESCO City of Literature Trust initiative can be found here.

If you are planning on visiting the Book Festival this year, Story Shop is a free event and a fantastic opportunity to hear vibrant new writing from Edinburgh.

  1. Hi Helen, just a quick and irrelevant note to say it was good to meet you at the Stranger Than Fiction meeting ths evening. I wanted to hear more about your volcano thing! Keep in touch, and hope to see you again at the next meeting. Colin

  2. Hi Colin,

    It was good to meet you too. I think we will all be able to learn a lot from each other. I’m working my way through the volcano book slowly but surely so I’ll be able to tell you more about it next time, and hopefully I’ll have more of an idea about what I’m going to do with this research.

    (For everbody who is not Colin, Stranger Than Fiction is a new Edinburgh based group for writers of non-fiction: http://edinburghnonfic.wordpress.com/)
