Short Short Story Slam – One Week to Go

We’re back. And we are as bloodthirsty as ever


After our uproariously successful first Short Short Story Slam at the Didsbury Arts Festival last year, we have bashed our heads together again and we’re putting on another one. Twelve brave competitors have stepped forward to take the challenge and this time we are offering a tasty cash prize to the victor.

It’s all going down in the upstairs of Gullivers on Oldham Street, starting promptly at 7:30 on Thursday April 22. Just £1 in and you get to see the finest local talent duking it out with their lashes of lexicon, their whips of words, while you, the bloodthirsty audience, decides who lives and who dies.

It is basically the Can’t Cook, Won’t Cook of literature slams. Does it get any better than that?

Our contestants for this fight are:

Ros Ballinger, Ailish Breen, Joe Daly, Joy France, Abi Hynes, Thomas Jennings, Mark Powell, Mark Mace Smith, Trisha Starbrook, Sarah Stuart, Simon Sylvester, Geriant Thomas
