on 20th June,
we’re inviting you to share your favourite stories with us.
Send us a synopsis of your favourite short story, along with a link to where it can be found online, and we’ll include it in our International Short Story Day post. You can send your synopsis via Twitter @ShortStoryForum, Facebook, or by email at Thresholds@chi.ac.uk.
Synopses should be a maximum of 30 words. Please make sure to provide a link so that we can find your story online and share it with our readers.
Please Note: Stories must have been professionally published and must be currently available to the public without subscription.
This is not meant to be a place for us to publicise our own work, but rather a place where we can share the stories we love to read.
