The BBC National Short Story Award returns to Small Wonder with an exclusive event ahead of the announcement of the 2017 winner. BBC Radio’s Editor of Books and longstanding judge of the Award Di Speirs will be in conversation with two fellow judges, authors Joanna Trollope whose 20th novel, City of Friends, was published this year, and Jon McGregor, plus shortlisted writers announced live on BBC Radio 4’s Front Row on 15 September.
Expect a revealing discussion about judging the Award and opportunities for short story writers on the BBC; readings by judges and shortlisted writers and the opportunity to ask questions. Participating shortlisted writers will be announced on the Charleston website in mid-September. This event is a unique chance to hear from 3 of the judges and two of this year’s short listed writers (to be announced on the 15th September) 3 days before the winner is declared.
