After something of a lull at WU Towers we’re delighted to be open for submissions once more for our first 2018 Story Sunday event on Sunday April 29th with the theme of A Moment in Time when around ten writers will be invited to take to the Southbank stage in Bedminster and enthral us with their talent.

Submissions Open Now

Any genre is acceptable, a historical tale or an imagining of the future, or maybe just a moment, crystallised in words. As ever we love to be shocked, stunned, terrified or delighted in any way.
Please check our submissions page for full instructions on how to send us your finely-wrought words.

All welcome on the night

Our promise to writers is a friendly audience – to our audience a night to remember for a mere £5 entry.
Sunday April 29th
7 – 9 pm

Thanks to all the wonderful people who have talked, tweeted or written about us (not to mention all those who sent something in) we are delighted to announce our line-up for Sunday 21st which looks like being as spinetingling (in a slightly different way) as our November event.

Debbie Young (Hawkesbury Upton)

Spine-tinglers event November 1st. Cometh the hour …

Let us tell you a story

South Bank Bar

Yes, as you may have heard our new and improved Sunday Night Stories get-together WILL take place on Nov 1st from 6 – 8 pm when you can snuggle up in the bar at Southbank Club Bedminster and let our members and guests make you shiver or smile with their spine-tingling stories.

Update! Submissions are closed and we have selected eight stories by our members and guests to be read on the night. We’ll be in the main bar at Southbank and hope to welcome everyone there who’s free to join us.

Tickets on the door. Don’t forget your voucher if you have one! Details below or contact us with any questions.

 

Local writers are invited to join us 

If you are within striking distance of Bedminster and have a chilling or thrilling story to hand (or can rustle one up in a hurry!) please send it to us by Wednesday October 21st. We’ll pick those we like best and invite the authors to take up our three guest slots on the night.

Please read our submission guidelines before you send us anything and only submit if you can come and read on the night. We’ll let you know by October 28th if you’ve been selected.

There is no entry fee (or prize!) for this BUT

  • everyone who submits a piece for consideration will be sent a Bring A Friend For Free voucher, so that even if you’re not reading, you can come along with a friend and have your entry at half -price.
  • if you’re selected and decide to come alone, you’ll have free entry.

The full ticket price is £5, by the way, to include spooky refreshments. (Cash only.)

So whether you’re a reader, writer, or someone who likes a bit of entertainment, don’t let Sunday evening get you down. Come along and be part of the Southbank scene, and let us tell you a story.
