Short Story Slam

Every year, the Small Wonder Short Story Festival plays host to the Slam. The audience are invited to read their three-minute stories in front of a crowd of other writers and four judges, for the chance to win a cash prize.

Hosted by author, journalist and reader-in-residence Damian Barr, the stories from the 2011 Slam all play with the theme ‘the key’.
