Story Sunday: Another Country March 19th 2017, 7 – 9 pm

There is no restriction on genre:  your countries and their otherness may be real or imagined, past, future or fantastical, nostalgic or bang up to date. Make us gasp, weep or laugh out loud. Make us feel. 

If you would like the opportunity to read your work to an enthusiastic and appreciative audience, please submit according to the guidelines below. We will choose the stories that appeal to us and fit with the other parts of the programme. We hope if you’re not chosen you’ll still come along and hear those who are.

If you’d like to send a story for our consideration, please observe the following:

  • wordcount 500 – 1500 – complete stories please, no extracts
  • your story can be published or unpublished as long as you have the right to read it out.
  • deadline midnight Sunday March 5th  2017
  • only submit if you can read on Sunday March 19th  2017 between 7 and 9 pm at Southbank Club, Dean Lane, Bedminster, Bristol BS3 1DB. We’ll let you know if you’ve been chosen around a week before hand.
  • email your submission to writersunchained at with ‘Another country submission’ in the subject line
  • attach the story as a Word doc (or docx) or in the body of the email. Make sure you include your own name, the title and the wordcount with the text

We think this should cover everything, but if you have any questions we suggest you contact us via Twitter @bww_unchained or email writersunchained at with ”Another country query’ in the subject line.

Hoping to hear from you soon!
