The Consequences of National Short Story Week

Photo by Yun Peng

To mark the first annual National Short Story Week, which took place 22–28th November, nine of the UK’s premier short story writers were invited to work together to produce a single short story.  Each writer contributed 100 to 150 words before passing the story on to the next writer in the chain.   


Taking part in this literary challenge were the writers Tania Hershman,

our very own Alison MacLeod, recent Q&A guest Adam Marek,

Julie Mayhew, Jonathan Pinnock, Valerie O’Riordan, Sarah Salway,

Tom Vowler and Susie Wild


You can read the results of their creative collaboration, in the story Consequences, here.
