Photos from 'All You Need is Love. Or Is it?' - our 15th Event on 5 November 2017


Here (in the order in which they read) are the brilliant authors who performed for our sell-out audience on Sunday 5 November 2017 at the SVA in Stroud. The event was part of the Stroud Book Festival, and sold out in only 6 days some five weeks earlier. Thank you to our authors and to everyone who attended for making it a very special night of short stories.

75 authors submitted 101 stories from which ten were selected for performance. This was the third time at SSS for two of these authors, and the second time for three. Five authors were making their debuts.

I'm particularly grateful to Kate O'Grady for reading, as she stepped in at the last minute in place of Nastasya Parker who, sadly, was ill. Nastasya will read her story in the spring.

The snaps are by Angela Fitch of Angela Fitch Photography
(www.angelafitchphotography.co.uk) who provided them free of charge. Thank you, Angela.

We will have videos of some of our authors reading on the SSS YouTube Channel very soon. And will be open in the new year for submissions to our spring event.
