Sunderland Short Story Award

Back in February, we were very pleased to announce an agreement with the Sunderland Short Story Award to publish two anthologies on their behalf, one for the stories shortlisted for the Adult category of the award, and the other for the stories shortlisted in the 11-17 category.


Given that we are a digital publisher, we will, of course, be selling digital copies of both anthologies, but considering the circumstances, we also thought it appropriate to do a limited-run physical copy of each anthology as well.

Awards Night

As well as publishing their shortlisted stories, the Sunderland Short Story Award will also be hosting (in conjunction with Waterstones Sunderland) an awards night, where prizes will be presented to the winners of each category.

The Awards Night will take place on Wednesday 30th May, from 4-6pm at Waterstones in Sunderland. This is a great opportunity for those interested to come along and support the successful authors, and enjoy a great night of literature.
