The Future of the Short Story

Wednesday 5 October 2016

Are the ever-increasing demands on our time leading to a desire for brevity in fiction?

Come and hear our panel debate the popularity and staying power of the short story.The appeal of the short story has never been so great as it is now, but how is it adapting to future times?

Will the long form novel become obsolete? Is the short story undergoing a gentle ‘evolution’ or is this a ‘revolution’? Is the short story future-proof? Hear our panel discuss these issues and more.

In celebration of the 2016 BBC National Short Story Award with Booktrust, we are delighted to welcome a panel including the 2016 BBC NSSA winner plus judges Kei Miller and Di Speirs.
