Short stories have a long legacy – but only if they’re kept in print!

Join four publishers bringing women writers from the archives into new readers’ hands, and three contemporary short fiction writers and editors, for two panels discussing how to ensure that women’s short stories have a long future. 

Event details 

The event will have two discussions and a reading: it will open with a conversation between four editors who are significantly shaping the landscape by republishing out-of-print women short story writers, from British Library Publishing, Daunt Books Publishing, Peninsula Press and Silver Press. 

The discussion will be chaired by Gill Partington and followed by readings by Juliet Jacques, So Mayer and Kadija Sesay, celebrating the Troup Horne short story collection at Senate House Library.

There will then be a discussion with short story researcher Ben Fried, about short story writing, editing and publishing now, and the futures of the short story that they hope to see.

Location: Seng Tee Lee seminar room at Senate House library
Date and time: Tuesday 16th July, 1pm-5pm
