Let’s Talk Stories!

Online Short Story Discussion Group

This group started as a place to get together during lockdown, and quickly became a weekly essential.  Pour yourself a glass of wine or a mug of coffee and snuggle down on a virtual sofa for a good old chinwag about a story. It now runs fortnightly.

Each session we take one short story, read it together and then discuss it. It might be an old story, it might be brand new. You do not need to read the story beforehand, but it will be sent to you the day before if you want to access the text before the group starts. These sessions are particularly useful for those who are reading as writers.

So far we’ve looked at stories by Shirley Jackson, Katherine Mansfield, Miranda July, Ray Bradbury, Jo Lloyd, Toni Morrison, Doris Lessing and CJ Hauser, amongst many others. All different, all gripping in their own ways.

It’s like a bookclub with very short books.

Let’s Talk Stories will run fortnightly on a Wednesday night from 7.00-8.30, from 16th September.

You don’t have to buy a ticket, but you do need to book one. You can book via Eventbrite on the links below. If you would like to block book the sessions and make a donation by BACS please email me at clare.reddaway@btinternet.com and I will send you the details.

Wednesday 11th November 7.00-8.30

Wednesday 25th November 7.00-8.30

Wednesday 9th December 7.00-8.30


I hope to see you at one of these sessions.  Thank you and happy writing!
