A short story discussion group - like a book club with very short books!

About this event

What is it?

Pour yourself a glass of wine or a mug of coffee and snuggle down on a virtual sofa for a good old chinwag about a story. This group started as a place to get together during lockdown, and quickly became essential. It now runs fortnightly.

In each session, we take one short story, read it together and then discuss it. It might be an old story, it might be brand new. You do not need to read the story beforehand, but it will be sent to you a couple of days before if you want to access the text before the group starts.

So far we’ve looked at stories by Shirley Jackson, Katherine Mansfield, Miranda July, Ray Bradbury, Jo Lloyd, Toni Morrison, Doris Lessing, CJ Hauser, Saki, Kevin Barry, Hari Kunzru, Ernest Hemingway, Jennifer Nansubuga Makumbi and Guy de Maupassant, amongst many others. All different, all gripping in their own ways.

A new season of Let’s Talk Stories will run fortnightly on Wednesday nights from 7.00-8.30, starting on 11th May.

Tickets for each session cost £6.00.

About the discussion group

Clare aims to create a warm and friendly space where we can spend some time with stories. This group is particularly helpful for those who are reading as writers.

Who is she??

Clare Reddaway reads and writes short stories. Her stories have been published widely and won a number of national competitions. She has organised a live lit event in Bath for the last 8 years, Story Friday, with colleagues at Kilter Theatre. Clare used to run monthly writing workshops at her home in central Bath - and now, in a very modern way, runs them every fortnight, online.

"It's been great to read, discuss and learn from the short stories Clare selects," said one regular participant recently.
