Today, the day of the shortest night of the year, is International Short Story Day, organised by those fine folks at Comma Press.

There’s loads of short story eventy goodness going (click here for all the details) but the one I’d like to point you towards is this one, in Nottingham, where my fab co-author of Freaks!, Caroline Smailes will be:

Short Story Night at the Broadway, Nottingham

7.30pm, Free event, Broadway Cinema, 14 – 18 Broad Street, Nottingham, NG1 3AL

Nottingham Writers Studio will be celebrating Short Story Day in style in the Studio at the Broadway Cinema. Join them for a FREE event offering fantastic author readings and a short story swap (please bring along your own favourite stories/collections to exchange). The evening will also include a charity raffle to raise money for Book Aid for Africa (http://www.bookaidforafrica.com/), with brilliant signed book prizes and general short story fun and love. With refreshments available from the Broadway’s Café Bar – how can you resist?

Authors reading on the night are: Nicola Monaghan, Caroline Smailes, Frances Thimann, Giselle Leeb, Alison Moore and Pete Davis.

Also, I’m at Strictly Writing today, answering some questions. 

And, don’t forget to have a listen to my interview with Jaymay in yesterday’s post, about writing, because it’s very, very good!

Happy short story day, folks!

ADDED: And to celebrate the day, I’m offering my 6 part flash fiction/short story writing course for only £89. Offer closes at noon tomorrow.
