Northern Short Story Festival

Had a great weekend in Leeds at the Northern Short Story festival, where Uschi Gatward, SJ Bradley and I read from our stories in the Resist: Stories of Uprising anthology. It was lovely to be able to talk to a full room about the stories, the process and the importance of such stories in the current political climate in the UK …

Many thanks to James Nash for his questions and a big thanks to SJ, Fiona and everyone else who is making the Northern Short Story Festival ‘the’ place to be for short stories in the UK.

If anyone is interested (and you should be) the anthology will be out from Comma Press in July.
